When asked what Women’s History Month meant to her, Shinese replied: Although women make significant contributions worldwide daily, I feel it’s important to take time to highlight and celebrate the accomplishments of women during women’s history month. It’s an opportunity to generate awareness about little known facts where women have been trailblazers, advocates, and creators of businesses, books and brands that are instrumental in impacting communities and changing the world.

Thanks, Shinese for all you do and for allowing us to share this spotlight on you. This is what Women’s History Month is all about.
