After tragically losing her younger sister, Joy Lindsay wrote a children’s book to preserve her sister’s legacy. After recognizing that many young women were looking to share their own stories, she founded Butterfly Dreamz to create a space for girls from underserved communities to share thoughts, feelings and stories. And, in doing so, the girls can recognize the power of their voice, develop confidence and grow as leaders to transform their dreams into reality.
With the benefits from American Express’s 100 for 100 Program, Joy is able to offer paid internships to high school girls. The internship allows the students to develop their confidence, leadership and career skills. In this video, Joy shares her inspiring mission and the impact of Butterfly Dreamz on her community.
