Natalie Hampton: She overcame bullying by creating a world changing app, Sit With Us
In this episode, August sits down with Natalie Hampton, a 19 year old freshman at Stanford, a youth delegate to the United Nations and one of People Magazine's 25 Women Changing The World, among many other accolades. This amazing young woman had a horrible bullying experience when she was in middle school. When it was over and she had moved to a more inclusive school, she decided she needed to do something about bullying--not just for her, but for every kid who is excluded, shamed and even physically assaulted. Natalie struck back by creating Sit With Us, an app that allows people who don't have a place to sit during school lunch, to sit with people who are happy to have them.
August talks to Natalie about the inspiring story behind sit with us and her plans for its future. You'll also hear about the new Tech Wellness Collection at sevenly.org, benefitting Sit With Us. It's a show you don't want to miss.
