Linda Smith has an interesting story that includes behind-the-scenes of Las Vegas and philanthropy at a major level. Unwanted follows her from poverty and abuse as a child to disability advocate as an adult.  You can listen to a podcast she did in 2019 for Learning From Others  here: 


“Linda Smith grew up in poverty and abuse but even as a mousy, neglected girl, she knew a great destiny waited. She had no idea her life would take the turns at word, or deliver her into a place of fear, guilt, triumph, and unconditional love. Dropping out of high school, she became a dancer, model, and the film actress, achieving a pinnacle of success she never thought possible – and then it all came crashing down. Or so she thought.

An intimate account of a mother’s journey to right the wrongs. It’s raw, it’s painful, it’s funny and it’s exhilarating.”
