I just turned 16 and have been invited and selected to participate in HOBY's World Leadership Congress held in Chicago in the end of July 2014.

My dad passed away suddenly  when he went in for surgery. This has totally devastated me but has not taken away my spirit or drive to succeed in life and help others. This has left my mother now a widow on disability funds only which significantly reduced and changed our future and opportunities. We were not prepared for that.

I have my first job and am working part-time and on high school full time. I am studying very hard as I recall my Dad always saying to me : "You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think." I believe this opportunity will push me onwards to my goals and to be a leader in this world!

Thank you for any support which is greatly appreciated in helping me fulfill my objectives in life, 

Sincerely, 

Natalie
