Sherrika Myers

Life Coach, Speaker, Visionary
2024 Honoree

Sherrika Myers, a dynamic visionary with a profound commitment to the well-being of children both locally and globally, is a devoted wife and mother with the joy of grandchildren in her life. A proud graduate of North Charleston Public School, she furthered her education, earning an associate degree in Business/Marketing from Trident Technical College.

Mrs. Myers passionately dedicates herself to the betterment of youth, particularly those facing adversity, and their families. Her mission revolves around enhancing their quality of life holistically by dismantling communicative and social barriers. As a Certified Life/Youth/Family Coach and a Certified Eric Thomas National Speaker, Mrs. Myers brings a wealth of expertise to her endeavors. She is the Founder/Executive Director of Every 1 Voice Matters Inc. & Lil Herbie Series, a Children’s Book Author, and the innovative mind behind Lil Herbie, the Anti-Bullying Mascot, Animated Series & Affirmation Doll.

In her impactful role, Mrs. Myers engages with thousands of elementary students through interactive school assemblies, book series, and educational presentations marked by transparency, genuine conversations, and easily applicable principles. Collaborating with elementary schools, she prepares students to develop positive habits and practices that will serve them well into their middle school years. Witnessing the transformation in children when they realize their capacity to overcome challenges fills Mrs. Mrs. Myers with profound gratitude.

Her mission extends beyond helping kids surmount obstacles, she strives to instill in them the belief that with hard work and determination, all things are possible.
