Born in Saigon after the war, 18-month-old Lynda fled Vietnam by boat, with her family. Stranded at sea for over half a month – persevering resilience and faith saved them. Lynda and her family settled in California in 1980. A survivor from the start – patience, grit, and leadership is in her blood. At age 3, she requested that her name be changed to Wonder Woman; Lynda could always be found, devotedly spinning, in front of the TV with her idol, the lovely actor Lynda Carter (of the 80’s series Wonder Woman). After negotiations with Mom, she agreed on Lynda, instead.
The cross-cultural experiences, combined with the conventions of fitting in with mainstream America created years of loneliness, shame, fear, people pleasing, limiting beliefs, co-dependency, and an extreme lack of self-love. Having strong cellular memories passed down of fear and a war-torn lineage of repressed women, Lynda also endured sexual trauma in her teens. She was naturally roused and called to the path of educating others to find their voice, break free from disempowering cycles of beliefs, build confidence, and forge healthy connections.
In light of the #metoo #timesup movements in Fall 2017, Lynda founded and directs an educational Nonprofit in CA, delivering Comprehensive SexEd and Empowerment Training (Emotional Intelligence) to High Schools, anonymous survivors, and the community: http://www.themagicofpsalm.com. Join the movement and help end sexual violence and sexual harassment — through education and empowerment training.
Grounded confidence and conscious connections are Lynda’s mission; Lynda is committed to building confidence in people, social connection platforms in technology, and conversations on stages that inspire. Fulfilling community, will shift our hearts. Shifted hearts will collaborate and bring into being social impact solutions. This will change the world.
