National Leaders of the Year, the organization’s highest and most
prestigious award. Girl Talk is an international, non-profit,
peer-to-peer mentoring program focused on helping teens build confidence
and develop leadership skills. Nutrisystem announced its partnership
with Girl Talk last August when the Company launched its #NowBelieveIt

The recipients, Natalie Cox and Mikayla Keen, are co-leaders of their
Girl Talk Chapter in Fort Branch, Indiana, and best exemplify the
mission and values of Girl Talk and its founder, Haley Kilpatrick. The
scholarships they received will be used toward their college careers.
Natalie will be attending Indiana University Bloomington in Bloomington,
Indiana, and Mikayla will be attending Vincennes University in
Vincennes, Indiana.

“We find that once a girl suffers with low self-esteem, it manifests
itself into adulthood and we want to really break that cycle,” said Dawn
Zier, CEO at Nutrisystem. “It is our honor to present Natalie and
Mikayla with scholarships as each is a proven leader in her community
helping other young women deal with the issues they face and gain more
self-confidence. Through our continued partnership with Girl Talk, we
hope to inspire a generation of young girls and women to be the best
versions of themselves they can be.”

“Natalie and Mikayla have gone above and beyond the call of duty as Girl
Talk Leaders. We are truly honored to know that such outstanding girls
are starting and leading Girl Talk Chapters to help instill confidence
in the lives of their middle school peers,” said Haley Kilpatrick,
Founder of Girl Talk. “I am confident that their story will inspire
other high school girls all over the country to start their own Girl
Talk Chapters in their communities.”

Natalie and Mikayla’s photos and biographies will be displayed on the
Girl Talk website for the next year.
