Lindsay was raised in Miami, Florida by a strong single mother. As a result, as a high school student she began "Strong Women, Strong Girls," a mentoring program that pairs young women ages 18-22 as mentors to low-income girls in ages 8-11. The young women work in teams as mentors to a group of 10-12 girls. They meet once per week to learn life skills and share the stories of strong and successful women.
With the help of the BE BIG in Your Community Contest grant, Lindsay has been working with HandsOn Miami to more than double to size of the Strong Women, Strong Girls program in Miami.
