Shyria has had a knack for educating, and encouraging since she was a young girl when her friends would come to her for advice. As she grew older, having a listening ear and giving advice became second-nature. Shyria, who also goes by 'Shy", often found herself giving counsel and direction to older women as well.
She knew early in life, she was not your average kid. She was only 8 years old when she spoke to her first crowd of one hundred people. As a teen and young adult, she continued to grow and blossom as a speaker. When she was 19, she began working with youth in churches and within local communities. When she was a senior in high school she became certified to teach pre-school age kids and assist school-age children.
At the age of 23, she started a mentor group for young girls 12 to 17 known as Young Ladies of Excellence, Y.L.E. She held conferences, workshops and coordinated several events throughout the years to teach, motivate and celebrate the young ladies. Not long after that, she realized her peers were seeking just as much advice and guidance, as the younger generation. So, she later expanded her reach and began mentoring young ladies 18 to 25.
Her passion for empowering women and girls was birthed out of the pain of her own upbringing which was very challenging. She’s faced numerous adversities but has found strength in her pain to help others change and succeed. Shyria is currently pursuing her certification to become a licensed Drug and Alcohol Counselor and plans to utilize it, to make an impact on the lives of a broader scale of women.
Shyria believes she exists to help young ladies and women who have been hurt and deserted, discover their voice and find power in their pain; through workshops, individual sessions and live events. As a result they are equipped to heal, grow and succeed in other areas of their lives. Her mission has always been to acknowledge where the pain comes from, accept it and CHANGE the outcome.
