Nicole Lynn Lewis Teen Mom TED Talk

TED Talks have become a sensation.
Basically the talks average around 14 to 16 minutes and the person on stage talks about all their lives work, a moving experience, or anything inspiration and important to them in these few minutes. The point is to share your story in a way that people can relate to and hopefully find inspiration in and walk away thinking in a new way. While some of the talks are amazing and moving I longed to hear one that REALLY related to me.

Last year that finally happened. 

Two AMAZING former teen moms and fellow pregnant and parenting teen advocates (Natasha Vianna and Nicole Lynn Lewis) delivered their TED Talks about teenage pregnancy and the work around support and encouragement that all teen and young parents need.

Nicole Lynn Lewis, author and founder of Generation Hope, delivered her first TED Talk (she has since done another) in 2013 about her nonprofit Generation Hope and teen and young parents education. Watch her talk and let me know what you think in the comments below.
