WASHINGTON - An 11-year-old girl from Alexandria took the internet by storm as she electrified the crowd at the March For Our Lives in Washington on Saturday.
Naomi Wadler, a student at George Mason Elementary School, stole the show in front of nearly 500,000 protesters as she delivered her message for action on gun violence.
“I am here to acknowledge the African-American girls whose stories don’t make the front page of every national newspaper,” Naomi stated as the crowd roared. “These stories don’t lead on the evening news. I represent the African-American women who are victims of gun violence, who are simply statistics instead of vibrant beautiful girls full of potential.”
The 11-year-old girl’s name began to trend on Twitter following her speech. Naomi told the crowd she helped lead the walkout at her school on March 14 along with her friend.
