Amanda MenaThe YMCA believes in giving kids a voice, but in the case of Lynn YMCA Music Studio Clubhouse veteran Amanda Mena, the YMCA gave her the confidence to share her voice on an international stage. The Music Clubhouse provides kids like Amanda with a professional quality recording studio and the guidance and tools they need to create music in a supportive, judgment-free environment. Combining her own natural talent with the skills she honed at the Lynn YMCA, Amanda showcased her considerable musical gifts on the Telemundo TV show “La Voz Kids”, a Spanish language version of The Voice for kids. Amanda won the competition and came home to celebrate her victory with a special performance at the Lynn YMCA. Amanda recently released her first single and the sky is the limit for her career. Despite her rocket ride to fame, Amanda still calls the Lynn Y her home and when not on the road, is back at the Music Clubhouse, laughing and joking with her friends and inspiring the other kids to follow their dreams!   #membersofymcametronorth
