My name is Lindsey Feltis and for as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for inspiring and empowering young girls and women to be unapologetically themselves, and encouraging young girls and women to learn how to love the skin they’re in. I am a recent graduate of Psychology and Communications studies at Wilfrid Laurier University and in September, I’ll be starting my Master’s in Developmental Psychology. This summer, I’m also volunteering in the children’s mental health facility at Lutherwood in Waterloo, and I can’t wait to spend the rest of life working with children and adolescents.
Over the past four years, I have dedicated myself to being a community builder at Laurier. Some of my favourite volunteer roles included coordinating Laurier’s First Year Project, directing their 5 Days for the Homeless campaign, planning Laurier’s first-ever WE Day X and working as a Laurier Ambassador. However, even before studying at Laurier, working with children and adolescents has always been close to my heart. After spending eight summers at Pearce Williams summer camp, including my final year as their Camper Counsellor Coordinator, I am now the chair of their alumni committee.
I also know first-hand how difficult life can be for young girls and women. Living with, and struggling with, anxiety and ADHD, I have learned the importance of letting love in and encouraging others to do the same. In the last few years, I have been dedicated to sharing my story in hopes of inspiring others to do the same.
In summary, I am a passionate, spunky, determined psychology graduate driven by a genuine desire to empower others. I am so excited, humbled and grateful to join the One Girl team and inspire young girls and women to conquer their own struggles, learn to love their authentic self, and live their best life.
