Urban Angel Profile of the Day: Nadine Lee – Speak the Dream Foundation

by Kim Anthony

As a young adult aging out of the foster care system with an infant and no family support, Nadine’s early life was particularly challenging. She spent 28 successful years in corporate America as an Organizational Manager but had a burning passion to be a positive force in the lives of children.

She became a foster parent and volunteered as a Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) when she realized that helping children is her life’s purpose and Speak The Dream Foundation was born. She is an effective speaker with compassion and a presence that will disarm and capture any audience. Nadine’s vision is to ignite a fire and inspire every young person that she comes in contact with and encourage them to always SPEAK the dream and most importantly, LIVE IT!!

Within her vision, Nadine also believes that the parents/guardians of our youth can be very pivotal to their success. Therefore, support, encouragement and inclusion of parents/guardians must be built into our programs. For more information or to support her wonderful organization visit:
