About Our Leader
My name is Sindy Victor and my goal is to inspire individuals to become their most confident selves. "Self confidence is considered one of the most influential motivators and regulators of behavior in people's every day lives" (Bandura, 1986). I am a Board Certified Behavior Analyst who uses visual and empirical research to express the relevance of spirituality and diversity in order to overcome social anxiety and negative behavior patterns. Becoming a Christian leader empowered me to interact with people of diverse backgrounds, thus gaining a well-rounded skill set that I could use in order to heal from childhood wounds and unashamedly bring forth the confident woman God has called me to be. With more confidence I was able to access individuals with greater influence, thus putting me in contact with bigger ideas. This is how I achieved success. “These interventions are not behavior-analytic in nature and are not covered by my BACB credential.” They are my passions that I wish to share with the world.
How it All Started?
Swarthy Lion Ltd. Co. was established the summer of August 2019 in Bridgeport, CT. A Behavior Therapist for seven years, Sindy was inspired by the creativity and uniqueness of her clients with autism & began illustrating her own puzzling experience. This is why the brand's platform also promotes autism awareness. After experiencing a loss of family ties, and scarred with bitterness from the perceived bias against darker skinned women, Sindy became socially removed and deeply withdrawn; art expressed through fashion & design became great tools for practicing self-regulation. Now residing in Atlanta, Georgia our leader daily serves as an independent service provider for individuals with barriers in social communication and behavioral deficits. Linking together art & ABA, Swarthy Lion aims to "lead with style," in influencing our wearer's to become confident leaders in diverse areas of life.
