Nicole Lynn Lewis is the co-founder and CEO of Generation Hope and author of the memoir, Pregnant Girl. Lewis is a former teen mother who put herself through the College of William & Mary with her three-month old daughter in tow. Nicole now works every day to change the statistic that less than 2% of teen mothers will earn their degrees before the age of 30.
The proceeds from the ticket sales and donations during this event will go to support United Way’s Bridge to Finish program that helps college students get the services they need to stay in school and complete their education.
