About Me: 

Greetings Beautiful and Amazing Women! What an honor to join the international choir of women and support their solo and collective voices, stories sung from the depth of their souls for humanity and women all over the world to hear.

I grew up with all my relations, grandparents, parents, siblings, cousins, students, community members and cultural organizations in what I call our "family village" in California. I was raised with many "she-ro's" in my life and grateful for the many teachings, wisdom, and the courageous and compassionate acts of love they have shared with me. We have so much to share and learn from one another and our capacity for love and compassion is infinite!

I am a passionate educator and counselor, advocate for social justice and equity for our diverse and indigenous communities. I am an advocate and supporter of the arts (performance, visual, spoken, documentary film) as a powerful and transformative vehicle for personal expression and pathway for authentic dialogue. I love traveling, meeting and listening to the stories of people from all walks of life, we carry their stories to the world and empower their journey as part of our own humanity.

I look forward to learning from all of you and the global network of women/sista's. Let's sing LOUD, in our own voices, who cares if off key, we sing because we care and refuse to be silenced!

With love and gratitude! Linda Ando
