Sherri’s disability has given her a very different outlook on life and the way to go about living it. She has attempted to tackle every obstacle with grace and passion. She has always possessed a sense of perseverance, but believes that it’s been heightened and credits her passion to continue to live life to the best of her ability through her children and her parents, especially for her grandchildren, who are her refuge and sunshine during dark days. Sherri refuses to allow her wheelchair to define her as an individual; she would rather redefine what it means to be a resilient fighter with a strong vehemence to life to the fullest overcoming every obstacle. Sherri’s outlook is that life’s only what you make it, but your Attitude determines your Altitude.
Sherri’s been able to move past her disability with the help of her family and support system. Her greatest accomplishment are her children who have become respectable pillars in their communities. She’s also proud of the organization she started called “Little Lady Like Inc.” Her dream is to continue with her organization and for it to grow into a national organization and continue to work hard in her community and share her life story and passion for “living to the fullest potential” with the youth around her. Sherri hopes to one day inspire and individual to aspire to be the best that they can be and to never give up without a fight.
