Sherletta Germain was raised in Flint, Michigan and moved to Tampa Bay, Florida (USA) 2007. She is the only girl, and the youngest of three. She is a licensed Life and Health insurance broker, with a background in leadership, healthcare and business. Although she experienced early childhood trauma including the death of her mother as an infant, she attributes her pain to her success.
In school, Sherletta immensely enjoyed singing, modeling, poetry, playing the violin and snare drum. As an adult, she continued singing and writing poems and short reads as a hobby. She became angry at life and did not write or speak publicly for 8 years. It was only after an unexpected breast cancer diagnosis in 2017 that she became more intentional about her giftings. Here, she would begin her journey of healing and philanthropy.
Sherletta opened a Business Consulting Corporation in 2021. Her target audience is women and children in business. The business was established to manage the 501c3 she envisions in 2022. This Total Wellness space will provide access to financial resources, cranial prosthetics, musical therapy and more.
Since she began speaking again, Sherletta became a global Inspirational Storyteller, Podcaster, Co-Author, and Orator. She specializes in anger, faith, and the effects of ignoring the body. Her style of inclusivism and wholeness approach inspires people to tap into their life’s purpose through self-discovery.
Sherletta has three children, Stacey, Minah and Nadia. Something you may often hear her say is, “Where do the leaders go when they need healing?”

Art and Culture Contributor Journalist
Joanna Panayi is a Greek Cypriot first-generation woman from Woodstock, Ontario, Canada. Being a creative thinker, Joanna has always had a passion for the arts, loved participating in school choirs, plays, and musicals. Writing became Joanna’s only solace in times where she could not make sense of her own thoughts. She realized writing was another creative outlet that would give her perspective, give back her voice and confidence. This discovery led to creating her Personal Blog Trending Me.
Trending Me is a collection of heartfelt pieces to empower women and ignite them to do the same. Ultimately Joanna started this blog as her own therapeutic channel to release the thoughts that were too overwhelming to keep inside. Joanna saw an opportunity to bridge the gap between women living in fear, to women cultivating and creating their own reality by embodying their truth.
Mostafa El Awamry
Art And Culture Journalist
Mostafa El Awamry is quite passionate about painting abstract art, poetry, short stories, and humanitarian studies, and activism.
It all started with expressing my own thoughts and emotions in a poetic way. Then he would think to his self about painting them in different colors with different shapes.
Also his thoughts on LGBTQIA+ and women right; made me think about socio-cultural values and their effects on subcultures and minorities. Then Mostafa El Awamry began to research and write about these matters. Hoping that those unheard voices be heard. Hoping for a change, even a little; just for safety, security, and peace.
