7 Questions for Brown Mamas blogger Cindy Mendoza Share this post Cindy Mendoza of Observatory Hill says she is “just a mom.” And like any good mom, the 33-year-old wants a better life for her sons, ages 5, 6 and 13. And she supports other moms through the online group she began in 2011 (with friend Diamonte Walker), Brown Mamas. It’s a source for African American moms to learn more about gardening, cooking, lifestyle tips and creating a safe neighborhood. Cynthia is also a ReClaim Northside Ambassador for GTECH and is currently working on reclaiming a vacant lot in her community. The space will be called, “A Place for Moms: Welcome Corner”.
