Ever since she learned of the devastation wreaked by Katrina as an 11 year old living in Iowa, Talia has been reaching out to young people across the globe, inspiring and empowering them to chip in, do their part, and prove that that they can, in fact, make a profound difference in their communities and the world at large. In her speeches and in this book, Talia highlights the fact that it is because of their youth that kids are uniquely positioned to make significant contributions to humanitarian efforts. Talia has brought young people together to bring their energy, passion, and devotion to such diverse projects. In this book she'll talk to like-minded youth and show them that any kid has it within them to do exactly what she did - and more, perhaps, than any adult. With inspirational messages, sample projects, and the results to prove that her approach works, Random Kid will become a go-to book for any kid with a dream, but who might not know how to get started.
