Tell us about yourself and your business: I am Sharmetra “The Inn-art-vator”. I specialize in helping girls discover their unique ability to BE, LOVE, and EXPRESS themselves…IN LIVING COLOR!
Inn-art-vation is a classy, sassy, and creative blend of self-expression and innovation. Inn-art-vation speaks to the girl who is on a quest to define who she is and unlock the unique mystery of the strong, confident, and creative young woman that she is destined to become. Being Inn-art-vative gives young girls the freedom to embrace their creative forces and embark on a spiritual journey to craft and color their lives, outside the lines.
