Some of my days are about styling, and some involve skateboarding. I’m proud to announce that on May 13, 2016 I was inducted into the  Skateboarding Hall of Fame. The awards ceremony  was held  at the City National Grove in Anaheim, California, and I was extremely honored to have legendary rocker Joan Jett  agree to do my introduction, which encompassed her views and mine, on female empowerment.

 

 

OG Pro skateboarder David Hackett and Nor Cal skater and well known photographer Bryce Kanights, also gave intro’s on my past & present skate history.

My acceptance  speech included a message for future generations of girls out there.

 

Huge thanks to Joan Jett, Kenny Laguna, Blackheart Records, and Greg Oliver for Joan’s awesome video introduction. You are all amazing!  A big shout out to powerhouse Lisa Jenkins who believed in the GN4LW message and helped make this all happen.  Bryce Kanights for the heartfelt words and discussing Cindy’s skate history, David Hackett for his re-cap of Cindy’s past and present, Skateboarding Hall of Fame and IASC for the honor, and much love to all of our friends and family who have been supporting since day one.  xx

 

Cindy’s final message for girls out there:

 

“So tonight I’d like to congratulate every little girl out there that defies her parents, stands up to her brother, the kids at school, or authority, and goes out there and goes after what she wants, not hearing the word NO, and fighting for what she loves. You can totally do this. We OG girls have your back”.


“It’s definitely time to smash the hell out of some glass ceilings, kick some ass, not care what anyone else thinks, and show the world just what girls can do – and I encourage all of you girls to go out there, have a blast, set the world on fire, and do some epic shit.”
