Sharon Corinthian is a Jamaican woman who migrated to the US at the age of eight. Now residing in Atlanta, Georgia, she’s a mother, aspiring writing and an entrepreneur.
Being an immigrant child with a heavy accent, she was picked on and made fun of by her peers. This left a lasting impression on her, causing her to realize the power of words. Often feeling lost and out of place she spent her days dissecting words and their effect on people.
However, her years spent on the island of Jamaica gleamed memories that inspired the conception of her first poem,
“The Cradle of Joy.” She then realized that she had a gift for word play.
Over the years she has used her words to capture her thoughts and the thoughts of others in a positive way—turning her tragedies into triumph. Touched by her inspiring words, the founder of the organization, “My Love for Autism asked her to be a freelance writer. Using this platform, she aspires to use her gift to encourage, uplift and inspire.
