Once a homeless teenager, Marnie Grundman stepped off of the streets and transformed her life to become an author, public speaker, activist and artist. Marnie has been featured on over 100 major television and radio shows in Canada, the United States and Europe. 


 A child who belonged to no one, missing at the age of 13, Marnie spent years living on the streets where she experienced, first-hand, the worst of humanity.  In her darkest hours, taking shelter by hiding and living in an apartment complex sauna, she was sure that everyone who had once known her had forgotten that she even existed. It was in those desperate hours that she decided she was paying up front for a better life that lay ahead.

Marnie founded the Love Marnie nfp., to #savechildhoods and to break the cycles of #youthhomelessness and #humantrafficking.
