Tweetable Quotes:

“Society doesn’t teach or train us to live in the deep down. Society teaches us and trains us that  you get an education, you get a good job, stay on the job, pay your bills, and take care of your family. It doesn’t always teach us to live your dream. Living deep down is where your joy is.” – Sharrona Reaves

“Relationships with women is something that I have always been super passionate about because I feel too many times, we don’t value our relationships with each other. And I think that If women could ever grab hold of that fact, together, we could run this world.” – Sharron Reaves
