Fearless Female Interview: Lindy D.
Who is your role model / a female that inspires you?
A female that inspires me is Frida Kahlo. She went through so many difficult times in her life but she didn’t let it bring her down. She let her art speak for her and I admire that.
Favorite motivational quote?
My favorite quote is by Frida Kahlo. “Don’t build a wall around your own suffering or it may devour you from the inside.”
What is your dream career?
My dream career is owning my own store or online store. Or creating a non profit.
What does a fearless female look like to you?
A fearless female is someone who does the right thing when she should and stands up for other women. Someone who wants equal rights for everyone and believes in the power of women.
Why do you think it's important to see more women in leadership positions?
Women belong in positions of leadership because we are in tune with people. We have so much to offer from our education to our emotional strength. There is absolutely no reason women shouldn’t be in leadership positions!
Why is it important to encourage girls to pursue field stereotypically dominated by men?
Women have been told to do the same things as careers for so long now. It is time for us to feel like it is okay to go into fields dominated by men because we are fully capable to do so!
How does being a fearless female benefit you and bring you closer to your goals?
It benefits me by bringing me closer to my goals by allowing me to pursue my dreams more confidently!
What advice would you give to young girls about being a fearless female or women struggling to recognize their power?
I would say to focus of equality of women and men. It is not about tearing down men. It is about bringing up women to the place they should have been all along. All women deserve to have the opportunities that men have.
What are your tips for being a fearless female?
Do what makes you feel confident. Wear what you like and feel good in.

I support women and what they want. I support all love and I support the equality of all people.

I respect all people regardless of sexual orientation and color.
How can women and girls support each other in today's world?
Respect each other and lift one another up! This world can be harsh, we need to be here for each other.
