Natalie Diamond is a motivational speaker that’s been featured on websites, blogs, radio shows and speaking events. Natalie received her bachelor’s degree from Florida State University and went on to receive her Masters in Business Administration following that. She was born in Florida evolving into young women with one goal within every speaking engagement, and that is to reach beyond the surface.
Natalie spent most of her younger adult years in the entertainment industry as a model for roughly 7 years. Starting her modeling career in college, she witnessed a lot of unfortunate things that young women go through in this industry that grasped her attention. Eventually she moved to South Florida with a focus on her modeling career in the city of Miami, Fl. Natalie witnessed so much within the entertainment industry that could’ve potentially held her back from achieving anything in life but by the grace of God, she was pulled in the direction of Christianity which changed her life.
When she discovered that life consists of more then just money and society’s version of what beauty is, her life made a 360 degree turn. She quit modeling and founded a ministry called Diamondnu (Diamond In You) where she executes her passion to teach young women about the Lord and the importance of valuing themselves through Him verses what the world portrays to be right. Natalie’s aim is to deliver every message with transparency and truth. She has the gift of reaching young women by telling her story withholding nothing back. Her approach does not cover up reality nor does it place a façade over it. She believes and stays true to this method because it’s exactly what was able to save her from the entertainment industry. Her platform is driven by the word of God coupled with her unique story. Book Natalie today to start making a change in the young women of your community!
