Name: S. Sharelle Dailey
Occupation: Project Manager
Sharelle says, “Courage is the ability to face your fears even during times of adversity.” Sharelle is all too familiar with women facing their fears daily by lending her talents, time, and energy to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure foundation. Sharelle has not only donated countless hours but has raised money for the organization.
Sharelle also has a passion for fitness and finds time to teach Zumba classes on top of her already busy schedule. “I have always led a pretty active lifestyle: from cheerleading, to dance, soccer, running, aerobics and most importantly my love for the Susan G. Komen 60 Mile Walk. In October 2009, I transitioned from Atlanta, Georgia where I worked with several personal trainers for my personal fitness as well as fundraiser endeavors for Breast Cancer. Upon my return an old high school friend of mine was advertising a Zumbathon so I decided to check it out. What do you know – it was LOVE AT FIRST DANCE and within a year I became a Zumba Instructor” says Sharelle. If you are in DC metro area check out her Zumba class.
The most courageous thing Sharelle has done this year is “stay true to myself and my beliefs even when it was easier to go with the popular vote.”
What advice would you give another woman who needs courage to deal with a difficult situation? I would say take a deep breath and think about what you would do if you were not afraid. Hold on to that feeling and go with it. You will not regret the choice. And, you will breathe easier knowing that you went with your gut instinct.”
