Sherita Sparrow is a game changer! She helps thousands of seniors and individuals with special needs see their brilliance. Her mission is to uplift and make a difference with her gift of creativity. This is born out of her desire to use art to give a voice to those often overlooked and sometimes forgotten. The message Sherita shouts from the rooftops is everyone deserves to be heard. She understands the value of putting the human spirit first. She looks beyond a person’s disability and peels back layers to reveal the real person.
Once upon a time, Sherita was perplexed by her dream career as a Graphic Designer, working for a national magazine company. She could be creative, get paid, and avoid the “Starving Artist” stigma. Yet, deep down in her heart, Sherita knew her “dream job” did not align with her professional goals. It lacked vibrancy and human connection. It is a chance encounter with a flier that leads Sherita to her destiny. She's invited to create art with seniors living in a nursing home. This is the turning point that changes her life.
At the start of the session, Sherita feels nervous and unsure of the outcome. By the end of the hour session, something is revealed.... There are smiles and a sense of accomplishment showing on each resident’s face. In this moment she realizes art transforms lives beyond words and she can make a difference. Sherita feels a pull in her heart telling her this is the direction she should go. So she follows her intuition and makes a leap! From that moment she knew there was no turning back. Sherita realizes she is called to help this population.
