Ms. Hinkson has always had a passion for helping others and community involvement: she is the founder and president of The Strong Hinkson Organization (The SHO), which is a nonprofit organization whose primary mission is to help provide support and resources to single parents who are pursuing full-time post-secondary studies (in Quebec, Canada). Similarly, The SHO is dedicated to helping single parents obtain the needed resources for their children’s academic studies. Although she has her own non-profit organization, her community involvement does not end there: Ms. Hinkson remains active within her community and tries her best to help out whenever and wherever she can.
