Overcoming loss and hardship, Natasha turned her own experiences into a ray of hope children suffering through the diagnosis, treatment, or death of a parent due to cancer. As a counselor for Kids Konnected, Natasha lent her own insight and compassion to walk with families through dark days she knows all too well. At school, she was the founder of the Future Business Leaders of America chapter and co-president of the Pink Ribbon Club. She spent four years as a board member for the Irvine Youth Action Team summer convention. Even with a demanding work load and her priorities focused on her family, Natasha had time to be the manager of a rock band! Natasha is from just south of us in Irvine, Calif., and will attend the University of Southern California in the fall to study business administration.
