Saturday, I had a chance to experience Bershan Shaw
‘s inaugural I Am A Warrior 180° Tour: Turn Your Life Around
event in the Washington, D.C. area. Shaw, a DC native, is a motivational speaker, life coach and founder of URAWarrior
. You may know Shaw from her appearances on the OWN reality show, Love in the City
. Shaw is a two time breast cancer survivor who has a powerful story of overcoming stage four cancer. The I Am A Warrior
tour is a day long event, chock-full of panel speakers and motivators like celebrity make up artist Kym Lee
, celebrity hair stylist Kiyah Wright
(also on Love in the city
), actress/photographer Chenoa Maxwell
(also on the TV show), and motivator/author Cheryl Wood
. All of the panelists shared their stories of overcoming fear, beating illness, finding inner beauty, and stepping into greatness. I’m sure all women can relate to the various testimonies shared during the tour, but if you’re challenged by cancer, illness, depression, and other illnesses and conditions, or, if you just want to network with powerful, like-minded women, this is the motivational movement for you. Check out Bershan’s website
