4Girls Organization Inc
Here are two charities that Linda is involved with. The mission of 4GIRLS is: to inspire and empower middle school girls to identify themselves as authentic, confident, and resilient, preparing them for real-life success. My vision and mission was to create a conference where girls from different backgrounds, cultures, and economic status come together for a weekend of inspiration and empowerment. Instead of listening to speakers, the girls participate in interactive activities such as self-defense, vision journaling, self-expression, dance, and more. All activities designed to expose girls to something new but, most importantly, to empower them to access their own strengths and voice. I wish I had had an event like this to attend as a young girl. I would have loved an opportunity to find my power and voice back then. 4GIRLS – Getting Inspired 4 Real Life Success – and help empower and inspire young girls.
