Share Your Story

The Born Brave Nation is made up of young people and youth advocates from across the world who are committed to building a kinder and braver world. We’ve found a “Gaga Effect” in our research, which is the power of using adversity for good. Lady Gaga used the difficult times in her life to shape her music and artistry. Your stories, experiences, and dreams are what drives our work and we invite you to join the Born Brave Nation by sharing your inspirational stories of kindness and bravery. We’re so grateful to the thousands of you who have shared your stores — on our website, at the Born Brave Bus, and in person across the country. Thank YOU!
