I Had No Clue....
The She-ro Project made its debut in January 2001 but the actual conception date goes as far back as 2006. I started a She-ro Awards Ceremony Honoring business Women who have assisted other business in their journey spiritually,emotionally or even financially.The 1st ceremony was small and cozy and I felt great being able to honor such great women. My plan was to continue to do it every year there after. Unfortunately lack of funds became a problem. I was struggling with my business and was unable to do in in 2007. So years went by and I continued my struggling busines while working f a full time job. In 2009 I took a leap of faith and left my job. I wasn't happy there and not giving 100% to the job as I should have. I left and haven't look back. So after giving my business the attention that it needed to blossom into this BEAUTIFUL entity that you see today. It prompted me to start the Kiddie Cookie Academy and revisit the She-ro Awards Ceremony. Now we are talking 5 years later and things have changed.I now look at things from a different perspective. So with that I felt the need to take the She-ro Awards Ceremony and create a MOVEMENT instead. This is something God put in my spirit to do.
The women of today are in need of empowering, uplifting & inspiring movements so that we can moves towards a better US. We have lost our way somewhere, somehow. The where and the how is not important. What's important is that we address the issues that plague us and start working towards a resolution to the many problems.
I was told that "Your not going to be able to do it". Today I am laughing because its getting done. The movement has been created. Going in a great direction at a great pace to boot. I come from a long line of survivors, warriors, go getters who laughed in the face of adversity. There's an Africa proverb that asks "How do you eat an elephant?" The answer is "One Bite At A Time". I have my plate, knife & fork. Iam sitting at the table ready to eat this elephant. We need people who have this same attitude to assist in getting this project where I'd like it to go. I hope to see you at the feast.
We are currently selling She-ro T-Shirts to fund our many projects. We are in the process of turning this into a non-profit organization
We plan to hold open forums like our State of The Woman Address where we plan to discuss the problems and try to figure out what needs to be done to bring about change. Change starts with SELF. If we can get people to recognize this and possible see that We need to be the change we want to see. We also plan to mentor the generation that will follow us. So stay tuned for the many wonderful things we will offer in the upcoming months
