Lindsey is AMAZING :)

I want you all to meet a young lady named Lindsey who is such an inspiration ! I fell in love with her Panda drawing the first time I saw it and was very happy our fans loved it too :)

Lindsey is 26 years old and has a chromosome disorder that caused her to have an intellectual disability and developmental delays. However, she doesn't let that slow her down. She's very outgoing and has a very kind heart. She participates in Special Olympics basketball, volleyball, tennis, horseback riding, bocce and swimming. She's going to College Station this week to compete in the state swimming competition.

 Last year, she was in the fastest heats in the 25m freestyle, back and breast stroke, and she got all gold! She also participates in a special art program thru ARC of the Capital Area in Austin. At one of their annual fundraisers, she had one of her paintings chosen to be in the live auction and it sold for $5,000! Lindsey  has chosen The Adventurers Academy of Lifelong Learning as her cause.

Oh....I also forgot to mention that she was just chosen as Central Texas Female Athlete of the Year! This is her with her award.
