Published author, vocalist, and professional free-lance writer, Sherea VéJauan nurtured a life-long love for the arts at an early age. She was thirteen years old when she first joined her school choir, where she began to explore the beauty and power of vocal expression. A literary bent introduced her to poetry, which she also pursued.
She became an active participant in various music and poetry competitions, giving her the opportunity to travel to different states. She also performed in talent shows and artist showcases. Among her early accolades is her achievement of First Place in the NAACP ACT-SO Competition regionals, which won the chance for her to read her winning poem at the NAACP National Convention in Dallas, Texas.
In 1991, Sherea’s talents were noticed by Stellar Award winner Kenny Smith, for whom she sang background vocals. She continued to utilize her skills, singing radio jingles and performing vocals for other artists and production companies. A devout Christian, she has also performed in and penned original music for well-known Gospel plays at the famed Wilshire Ebell.
Sherea’s positive spirit and abundant energy grows from her faith. While touring, she has continued to give back by sharing her gifts within the community. She has ministered at schools, churches, youth camps, and homeless shelters. No stranger to the hardships of life, Sherea was raised by her maternal grandmother in Compton, California, following the death of her father. As a young adult, Sherea was determined to escape the defeated mentality that many expected of her. She found strength in her faith that God would bring good things to those who love Him. With this foundation, she worked her way through college, persevering to achieve her goals.
Sherea is also the co-founder of The Goal Setter’s Club, a coaching organization based in Cerritos, California, that introduces the art of goal-setting to America’s youth.
Believing in excellence, Sheréa continues to hone her craft as a poet and vocalist as a member of the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers, the Christian Writer’s Guild of San Diego County, and Toastmasters International.
Sherea is author of several book titles, including, Realistically Speaking: Speaking What’s Real, Keeping What’s Holy. A collection of poignant short stories, poems and inspirational sayings taken from everyday life, the book challenges individuals to expose their true selves to God’s scrutiny, under the protection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Sherea resides in Southern California, devoted wife for over twenty years to her husband Brian, and mother to their three children, Reginald, Jasmyn and Kennedy.
