Milana Vayntrub

Founder
Can't Do Nothing

Milana Vayntrub, Adweek Creative 100 and #Can’tDoNothing co-founder, shares her message of hope, opportunity and global responsibility, challenging others to make the world a better place. Many know her as saleswoman Lily Adams in AT&T’s popular series of commercials or as Sloan from “This Is Us”, but it is Milana’s compelling story as an ex-refugee and advocate for combatting the global refugee crisis that is truly capturing the world’s attention. At the age of two, she fled religious persecution in Uzbekistan with her parents to make a home in America. Twenty-five years later, she co-founded the grassroots #CantDoNothing organization, created to encourage others to give their time, money, and voice to assist refugees worldwide.
