Tiffinni A. Young was reared in Pleasant Grove and spent much of her childhood in an area of Dallas known as ‘The Bottom’, as a member of Golden Gate Missionary Baptist Church, where she is still an active member. She attended the Law Magnet High School and is a proud graduate of Lincoln Humanities/Communications Magnet High School and Florida A & M University. Tiffinni attended the University of Arkansas School of Law for 2 years and spent her last year of law school as a visiting student at Texas Wesleyan School of Law.
Ms. Young was appointed to serve on the inaugural City of Dallas Youth Commission in 1994 and later appointed to the Park & Recreation Board to represent District 4 and District 7, respectively. The values instilled in her by her family and her faith, her love of community and passion for people led her to enlarge her commitment of service and run for public office. Councilwoman Young was elected to the Dallas City Council in June 2015, as the District 7 representative.
