Khadija Shari is one of the dancers that performed with Beyonce at Super Bowl 50. She has also danced for other artists like Pharrell and Rihanna. She was on the cover for Pharrell’s “Marilyn Monroe” single cover. She is from Bedstuy Brooklyn and now tours the world thanks to her talent. Along with sharing her beauty online she is constantly providing some encouragement, here is one of her recent facebook posts.

Hello Beautiful People. It is Palm Sunday 2016 and I am so thankful to see another one. God has truly been a major source in my life. I can’t thank him enough. And I WILL continue to praise him every chance I get. It’s nice to be recognized for the gifts he has given me. But it’s a much greater feeling knowing I’m using these gifts to inspire, uplift and bring a positive light to people (My black Queens especially).

The arts has allowed me to reach people across the world. Places I can’t even pronounce lol. Coming from a west indian family and being raised in Brooklyn, NY, I don’t ever take it for granted. I may not have graduated college and gotten that validation but I can say I have a degree in Life and Survival. My road has been far from easy. Many trials and tribulations. But God has kept the arts in my spirit and my life for a reason. I’ve read books and studied many different cultures, ideas and people. But it’s been my traveling around the world (because of the arts) that has allowed me to put those same faces and cultures, I read about, together… in the flesh. Now that, to me, is rewarding.

We are all here to fulfill a purpose. And everyones purpose is different. I believe as humans, forget a COLOR, we ARE all here to help in some way. You can have all the accolades, schooling, money and status in the world. But what have you done to help someone else, your community, the world?? Yes this world can be very cruel sometimes. And I pray this new presidency brings positive changes to America. But we gotta start with ourselves 1st. Let’s start loving more. Forgiving more. Helping more. Saying Thank You more. Bring forth your ideas and actions that can help bring a positive change more
