Lyndia Mesidor joined our team early last month as the newest Design Fellow on our Port-au-Prince team. Lyndia was born in Montreal, Canada, to two Haitian parents and grew up in Miami, Florida. She initially came to Haiti for three months to help Haitian architect Yves Francois where she met the Architecture for Humanity team and was asked to stick around. Lyndia decided to put off grad school at NYU to work with Architecture for Humanity designing schools for Haiti.
Lyndia is a natural born runner, though she hasn't been able to for a while and complains that she's getting too scrawny.
