Nathalie at work

"It has always been taught to me to stand up for what I believe in, to stand up for human rights. I focus on women's rights and LGBT rights. There's no way around it, I must always stand proudly for this strong, wonderful community. I will never stop fighting for LGBT rights and awareness. " - Nathalie Diaz, age 16
