Marnie Grundman is an author, speaker, activist and Shared Hope Ambassador who has been featured on over 100 major television and radio shows in Canada, the United States and Europe.
Missing at the age of 13, Marnie spent years living on the streets where she experienced the worst of humanity first-hand. In her darkest hours, while living in an apartment complex sauna, she found the courage to break free and forge a life for herself with dignity and grace.
Marnie’s mission is to break the stereotypes related to runaways and people experiencing homelessness and is a fierce advocate for the missing. Working to change the perception of runaway children so they might finally get the help they desperately need, she speaks on a variety of topics related to children, child abuse, sexual assault, runaways, homeless youth, human trafficking and healing from trauma.
Marnie’s personal experience as a homeless youth and runaway gives her the ability to share first-hand insight and lived experience that touches and inspires her audience. She possesses a candid vulnerability that allows her to connect on a deep level with her listeners.
IN THE PRESS
I could not put this book down. I thought I would read a few pages before bed and just could not stop reading it. Such an inspiring story and beautifully written. I might have to read it again.
