About MissHeard Media

Formed in 2013, MissHeard Media is a space for teen girls to share their stories, make connections with the world and other girls like them, and sharpen their skills. We give girls a platform to elevate their voices and create community. MissHeard Media is unique because we connect girls to the globe, one shared experience at a time, and empower them with tools they need to navigate the world.

Founded by a girl-advocate with nearly a decade of experience working with girls on leadership, and backed by a board of teen girls and youth-related professionals, MissHeard aims to break the mold of traditional teen media by focusing on girl-centered and -created content to foster empowered, girl-positive communities.

MissHeard is designed for REAL girls between 12 and 17 to bring to life what ignites their curiosity, share what inspires them, and strengthen the skills they use every day! MissHeard Media wants to create a world where all teen girls feel understood, prepared, confident, and most of all, heard.

Meet Our Founder

Lindsey Turnbull

Inspired by the teen girls she worked with in college, Lindsey created MissHeard Media.

Lindsey wants to live on a planet with teen girls who feel understood and appreciated, coffee that comes from the kitchen tap, and an endless supply of macaroni and cheese.

As a girl advocate with close to ten years experience, Lindsey has helped hundreds of girls embrace their most confident, competent selves through the Young Women Leaders Program at the University of Central Florida and MissHeard Media. Using her background in history and leadership development, Lindsey uses her research, writing, and presentation skills to create media and workshop experiences for teen girls that Huffington Post said “chang[es] the global narrative for women.”  Her ultimate goal is to help teen girls shape the world by encouraging empathy and global savvy.

When she’s not leading workshops or writing for a teenaged audience, Lindsey enjoys intriguing YA or detective novels, admiring famous women from history, or blogging about heavy metal.

Let Lindsey lead her leadership, perseverance, connections- and confidence-building workshops at your club, school, church, or organization today!
