Tara Lynn Townes – President of Tiny Be Mighty, is an impassioned Published Author, App Inventor, Certified Bullying Prevention Expert, Developmental Therapist, Curriculum Writer, and Certified Life Coach. With a Master’s in Human Development and Family Studies from Arizona State University, she has over 20 years of seasoned experience working with women, children, and families as a whole. With a BS in Child Development, and years of professional life coaching, and consulting, Tara Lynn is passionate about being a positive example of love and acceptance to all mankind.
As a philanthropist and mentor of the Women’s Welfare to Work program, Tara Lynn was recognized by the California State Senate and Congress for her participation and work. When her son Encore was diagnosed with a condition known as Achondroplasia or “Dwarfism”, there was little doubt in Tara Lynn’s mind that her son was born with a mighty purpose.

Tara Lynn has embarked on a personal endeavor to raise awareness about dwarfism and to offer a resolution for bullying. Thus, she established a non-profit organization “Tiny Be Mighty” to assist families who have lost children by way of suicide as a result of bullying and to combat bullying in general. Tara Lynn and her son Encore received a congressional citation award from the State of Connecticut for their anti-bullying work in the community.

As a result of her personal and professional journeys, she is highly dedicated to assisting others in breaking through life’s barriers. Above all, she believes that our best life is what we create, which holds true for our worst life. Therefore, living beyond ourselves is how we create greatness. Lastly, her life’s creed is whatever we put in the universe will never return voided, so we should make it our best!

Brand Ambassador

Encore L. Hunt also known as Corey, is a rising star. Corey was born with a condition known as Achondroplasia or “Dwarfism.” He is a child with a prodigious mission and his steps are definitely divinely ordered! He is here to serve his purpose to raise awareness about his condition as well as extend support to children who are bullied.

At the tender age of 7, he began to speak publicly to school children, parents, and peers about being little in a big world. He walks with posture in his purpose and aspires to touch the hearts of many through speaking, singing, writing, and acting. His positive outlook and demeanor instantly enthralled people who encompass his presence.

He shines as bright as the most luminous star that juts out among the rest. Corey will not let his small stature bend, break, or shift him out of his jubilance. He is everything and stands in the humblest of shoes as he walks his journey.

Damon Henderson

Director of Community Outreach

Contact - dhenderson@tinybemighty.org

Damon E. Henderson, LLC, hails from the vibrant city of Pasadena, CA, where he was brought up in a community steeped in values of civic participation and service. He owes this ethos to his parents who were both deeply involved in the local community – his father serving as the President of West Altadena Little League and coaching Damon’s Little League team, while his mother taught in the Pasadena Unified School District for over three decades.

Damon graduated from DeVry University and embarked on a 35-year-long career in Engineering within the Information Technology industry. He began his professional journey at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (NASA) in Pasadena, CA as a System Engineer for the Spacecraft Cassini. Damon has always felt a deep passion for sports and started coaching Flag Football at Villa Parke. He then moved on to coaching Pasadena High School football, followed by refereeing Flag Football for the past 10 years.

In 2020, Damon relocated to Atlanta, GA to be closer to his two children just before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Despite the challenges posed by the pandemic, Damon continued his passion for sports and began refereeing for I9 Sports. Alongside his work as a referee, he also mentors other officials and middle school children in the Greater Atlanta area.

When he is not working or mentoring, Damon loves to spend his free time indulging in a variety of outdoor activities such as visiting beaches, parks, mountain biking, and hiking
