Today we’d like to introduce you to Sharee Silerio.

Hi Sharee, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
An enthusiastic student of life, I have an MA in media communications from Webster University as well as a BA in communication with a film studies certificate from St. Louis University.

My desire to make sure Black women and girls feel accepted and valued through my work comes from my personal experiences moving to a predominantly white neighborhood after living in a predominantly Black neighborhood.

Since I often felt out of place, watching movies, music videos and sitcoms became my refuge. Expressing myself through poetry; videotaping myself lip syncing and dancing to my favorite R&B and Pop bops; reciting monologues on the family camcorder; and recording my sister act out scenes of a horror film I wrote allowed me to be and see myself.
