Natalie Hampton is the 16-year-old designer of the Sit With Us app, whose objective is to help students find lunch buddies and avoid public rejection. She was inspired to create it by the fact that she spent her entire seventh grade year eating alone. The app is already catching on at her school in Sherman Oaks, CA and will hopefully spread across the nation.
