Our community is experiencing the loss of a beautiful and brave tSB youth, Natalie, who inspired many of her peers and tSB community members. Natalie was a former Prophet and current Peer Leader. On December 18, 2018 she was fatally shot by her mother. She was quiet and shy, but we at tSB saw her grow as a leader, confident and compassionate, speaking up for others and herself. Natalie was our youngest peer leader, and showed so much love and strength throughout her time with us.
Natalie embodied tSB’s motto, “push your growing edge,” in her quiet courage. Her death impacts all of tSB immensely, especially our Peer Leaders. We are still trying to process this and are seeking solace within the community. Through this incredibly hard time, we ask for your prayers and support as we honor Natalie in the best way possible. Please keep her, her family, and the tSB community in your thoughts. We will ensure to make resources and other support systems available.
