Maci Bookout, star of MTV's "Teen Mom," will speak at 7 p.m. Monday, April 15, in the J.W. Jones Student Union Ballroom at Northwest Missouri State University.
"Teen Mom" was a reality television series that aired from 2009-2012. Spun off from another MTV reality show, "16 and Pregnant," the program followed the lives of four young women, including Bookout, as they navigated their first years of motherhood.
"Teen Mom" is a popular show, and Maci's message should inspire all students to overcome any curveball that is thrown at them throughout college and life in general," said Lucas Clark of Northwest's Student Activities Council, which is sponsoring the event.
After getting pregnant as a teenager, Bookout starred in the first episode of "16 and Pregnant," then joined the cast of "Teen Mom for all four years of the show's run.
Bookout's lecture at Northwest will focus on how teen motherhood left her determined to pursue her dreams and continue her education.
