Meet Sherona, Assistant Manager of the national women’s football team. Her daily hustle is driven by her desire to provide for her parents the same way that they once provided for her. From a very young age she was taught to always go after what she wanted to achieve. She believes that everyone should have an opportunity to pursue all their talents, not just school or sports, but both. Everyone should find what their strengths are, work to build them and use them to progress in life.
Sherona is currently is also an assistant lecturer at the University of West Indies. While her team prepares for the World Cup, she is able to continue helping her students during the semester and make herself available to them 24/7. A lot of her time is spent helping her students grow and providing them with the tools to find their own greatness. She wants to help those around her to chase their dreams and to always strive to be better.
“Hustling for me is living, you know, not just existing but actually living,” Sherona says. “Making use of your time and effort to live your best life, to be your best self, to follow your passions. Not just to get a degree because you want a piece of paper, but to try to do something with it and change someone else’s life.” Her hustle isn’t tied to a time zone, which is why being connected at all times is so important for her.
Sherona’s work takes her to many different parts of the world. Along the way she makes connections with people from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds. Because her contacts are all over the world, she often doesn’t have a set schedule. Waking up at 3:00 a.m. for a call with someone in Hong Kong and sending emails at 11:00 p.m. to Australia are part of her norm. Aside from her academic and professional achievements, a big part of what currently drives Sherona is her faith. Going to church and singing in the choir is her way of thanking God for everything that He has given her and allowed her to do.
Hustle on with Flow, Sherona.
