YPMM: Natasha Vianna- Young Parent Advocate

Young Parents Making Moves is a new web series I am embarking on. 

Whenever I meet some one who tries to tell me that I am the "exception and not most teen parents are like me" I try to express to them that i'm no exception, just part of a growing group of young parents who care, who are motivated and who are making a difference.

Previously, I did a video interview with Founder and Executive Director, Geneva Farrow of  A Young Mother's D.R.E.A.M.

This week I interviewed Natasha Vianna a former Teen Mom who is now a Young Parent Advocate. Natasha has been featured on Huffington Post speaking about Young Parents, and birth control, blogs for several online blogs and has spoken at Massachusetts State House about what Young Parents really need.

Meet Natasha:

A Young Mother's D.R.E.A.M

Geneva Farrow is a former Teen Mom and college graduate. After completing college she wanted to give back to the young mom community so she created A Young Mothers Dream a non-profit organization that provides young moms a mentor and scholarships for them to be able to complete their education.

Currently they are up for a grant from Chase in the amount of $50,000 but THEY NEED OUR VOTES! Please vote for them here!

I was so inspired by Geneva that I asked her for an interview and was very excited when she agreed! She gave us some exclusive insights about AYMD future projects and how they have been helping young mothers in NYC for two years now.

You can find AYMD as well as blogs and organizations for and by teen moms in our Helpful Links section.
