We had the good fortune of connecting with Sherrika Hunt and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sherrika, what do you want people to remember about you?
I want my legacy to be that of someone who made a difference in the world. A person that captured the essence of a Black woman entrepreneur who wrote about life lessons, values, accomplishments and hopes to empower change and impact others to go be great.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
My PR company, A Diamond in a Rough Management LLC helps provide the connections and resources to grow and build through marketing your business, events and brand to the next level.What sets me apart is I’m one on one with my clients, I get involved and support and I’m hands on till the job is done. When life changes happened I wrote a book and marketed, brand and promoted my own book very successfully and that’s when the vision came to help others do the same for them in spite the pain of losing my parents I push through to my purpose to help others till the day I close my eyes I will always give back.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. I love Galveston I love the water, boat rides, the windy the skies and hotels on the beach the peaceful sound of God working. So my weekend get away is looking over a balcony at water waves and seafood and a glass of wine.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Big thank you and appreciation to my late parents Charlie & Jewel Hunt who put the fear of God and the power of love and humility in me, I hope I’m making you proud in heaven.
