  • Moderated Conversation: Jenna Hager and Barbara Pierce Bush

    View Speech Info

    United in their humanitarian missions and the spirit of service—as well as through their close family bond—Barbara Pierce Bush and Jenna Hager have found a shared purpose in giving voice to the disadvantaged while bringing to light stories of hope. Coming from a unique vantage point as the only twins to grow up in the White House as both grandchildren and children, Barbara and Jenna were inspired to live lives of meaning from an early age. Stemming from their travels to impoverished areas in Africa and Latin America, they have now made it their life’s calling to address the most pressing health, education and economic inequality issues of our time. Whether through Barbara’s creation of Global Health Corps or Jenna’s position as a Today correspondent and UNICEF chair, both women help spread the message that ideas put to action are the best kind. With their special brand of infectious warmth and kind humor—evidenced in their delightful back and forth banter during their presentations—this dynamic pair will ignite an audience’s passion to serve and inspire future young leaders to give back in their schools, local communities or abroad.

  • A Journey of Hope: The Importance of Early Childhood Education and Giving Back

    View Speech Info

    A devout humanitarian, Jenna Hager shares with audiences her message of empathy for supporting those in need and emphasizing the importance of early childhood education. From traveling to Latin America in 2006 with UNICEF, to teaching and helping to improve inner-city schools in Baltimore, to her family involvement in the Points of Light non-profit organization founded to support volunteerism, Hager shares inspiring stories that put a human face on the startling conditions that afflict millions of youth around the world, and demonstrates how small change can make a large difference in a single life. She also draws on her New York Times best-selling book Ana’s Story: A Journey of Hope, which chronicles the severe hardship of abuse and neglect of a young woman Hager met in Latin America, and is ultimately a story of courage, resilience and determination. Hager motivates people to triumph over adversity and become involved in caring for and supporting the disadvantaged individuals, schools and communities in society that need help.
