Sharon Rose- Soul Stylist & magic maker
My story is really one of unbecoming. The unbecoming of everything I was told I should be, should do, and should want. I was living in a world where I could never be really happy because I was always trying to be someone I wasn't. I was living in a world that told me to hide my gifts and conform to the rules of a society that I never really fit into.
I did everything I was supposed to do. I graduated high school, went to college, graduated in 3 years, was hired into management with full benefits at 21, and was well on my way to a 6-figure salary before reaching 25.
But this is getting ahead to the Unbecoming, let's start at the Becoming of the first 23 years of my life.
I was born in Miami, FL on a hot November day, #fire, and moved with my family to Queens, NY right before kindergarten. I spent most of my life in New York, between Queens, Manhattan, and Long Island. I remember our home in Queens, playing in my shared bedroom with my sisters playing Barbies, school, and house. My favorite game was always make-believe.
