Announcing the October #YearOfTheGirl Honoree


Fischer Sinclair Griffin is in the fifth grade at Fort Braden Elementary School. The CSWG’s #YearOfTheGirl initiative highlights a different girl each month to showcase the talent, diversity, goals, and dreams of Tallahassee/Leon County’s girls.
“It is an honor to recognize Fischer Griffin as this month’s #YearOfTheGirl honoree,” said Paula DeBoles Johnson, Chair of the Tallahassee/Leon County Commission on the Status of Women and Girls. “Fischer has demonstrated tremendous leadership, empathy, fairness, and inclusion – the qualities we want in our community’s future leaders!”
Over the summer, Fischer participated in the Girls Can Do Anything! Summer Camp where she has proven to be a dynamic and kind leader. During one activity, the girls worked together to launch their own business; Fischer was on the marketing team and demonstrated poise and thoughtfulness, even doing her first media interview. Fischer has been an amazing example for all of the girls in the Girls Can Do Anything! Summer camp.
Fischer would like to be a teacher or a singer in the future, though every week she has a new idea of what her future might hold. Ultimately, Fischer hopes to become President of the United States someday.
Her hashtag is #FischerForPresident.


CSWG #YearOfTheGirl Honorees must demonstrate an outstanding initiative in civic, community, service, or education projects.
