Lauren Tiffany

HERstory

 

Lauren Tiffany Herndon, 35, is the Founder of Far’falla Girl, a confidence construction and empathy awareness program that provides young ladies with the life experience tools they need to live successful lives and make an impact in this world. At the age of 20, Lauren gathered a group of 20 girls from her church, ranging in age from 10 - 16 years old, in her Logan Square apartment for a 22-week Saturday program that was then known as Straight Modest. From 2005-2007 Lauren’s journey to help girls discover their purpose and passion in life led her to do the same. 


In 2008, Lauren took a sabbatical from Far’falla Girl to pursue her passion for Fashion. She attended the Illinois Institute of Art-Chicago to take the journey to becoming a fashion Designer with a focus on Bridal Design. Not too long into her schooling Lauren realized she was really missing making a difference in the lives of girls. After taking time off to pursue her passion for fashion design and editorial marketing, Lauren started 2011 by resurrecting Straight Modest and transitioning it into what is now known as Far’falla Girl. Taking the program into community centers, including Lighthouse located on the Southside of Chicago and the Dream Center located in Humboldt Park. By 2014, Lauren introduced Far’falla Girl to a whole new arena, Chicago Public Schools, starting with ACE Technical Charter High School on the south side. While at ACE Tech.


In 2016, Lauren took Far’falla Girl into a second Chicago Public High School, Young Women’s Leadership Charter High School, after getting to know the younger sister of one of the ACE Tech Far’falla Girls. In 2017, as a favor to a Far’falla Alumnae, she launched the Question Mark Colony Program at Bardwell School of Excellence for 6th thru 8th grade girls. 2017 was a major year for Lauren pursuing her goals in being a motivational speaker, speaking at a top accounting firm, KPMG-Chicago, Another Chance Ministry: Power to Pain Conference, Faithworld’s Bella Women’s Panel, as well as, schools, summer camps, and back to school events. Being a worldchanger means exploring every platform possible that put her in a room with young ladies that need a confidence boost.


In 2017 Lauren and Far’falla Girl set out to spread their wings, traveling and introducing new programs geared towards continual follow-up for existing Far’falla Girls and programs such as 'Beautifully Mended' (A support group developed by a Far’falla Girl) that will help in the mission to finding hidden butterflies all over the nation. These days you can find Lauren working as a Retail manager for a Top plus size brand, ELOQUII, as well as, spending every Wednesday taking girls at Young Women’s Leadership Charter School on a journey of self discovery and empathy awareness.
