I'm Shirley "Jewel" Smith a native of Newark, New Jersey and, most recently, resided in Cleveland, Ohio where I attended Cleveland State University, majoring in Urban Studies with a minor in Organizational Leadership.
My experiences of being raised in the inner city of Newark ignited a flame in me at a young age to uplift and give back to those around me.
When I was 21 years old, my mother passed away, creating a passion within myself that centered around empowering and uplifting girls and young women, which include mentoring, motivating, encouraging those faced with adversity to set life goals and providing them with assistance to do so.
In addition to helping shape today's young women, I also am an active mother to Demi, Peyton, Dakota and Denver Smith, as well as a devoted wife to NBA Lakers, JR Smith.
It is my hope to use my platform in a constructive light
by making a positive impact in the world, today.
