The Beauty of Giving Spotlight continues. The entire month of December we will continue to showcase industry influencers and their Beauty of Giving. Genise Shelton who happens to be a wife, mother, entrepreneur and reality TV star is definitely a woman on the rise! Sheen Magazine sat down with Genise, to find out some of her ways and beauty of giving.
What motivates you to give back?
My grandmother was a foster mother for over 30 years for abused, neglected and abandoned children. I am truly inspired by her legacy. As a mother of six black children, I am disheartened that our children… Our black and brown children can go missing in this country and be treated as an afterthought. I can’t and will not sit back in silence. I will continue to fight for the recovery and rehabilitation of our missing children.
What message do you hope to convey through your way of giving?
Our village has been broken and we as a community we have to start bridging the divide by protecting one another and our children… Truly being “Our Children’s Keeper”. I want to convey the message that our children matter. It really takes a village to raise a child and as a community, we need to get back to collectively looking out for each other and we can start with our children.
Why is it important to use your platform to impact the lives of others in a positive manner?
I was afforded such a great opportunity through national exposure on Married to Medicine and I have committed myself to making good use of the popularity. I know that God blessed me with this amazing platform for the greater good of the world.
