Shareeff is a native of Miami, Florida with an African-American and Dominican heritage. His life began in the historic and notoriously crime infested neighborhood of Overtown. Shareeff’s educational path was troubled. He attended 11 schools before dropping out at the age of 17. The high poverty, single parent environment that he lived in proved to be a challenging competitor for Shareeff’s dreams, talents, and abilities at the time. Shareeff’s wake up call and invitation to know God for himself came when he experienced many friends who have died violent deaths in a short period of time or incarcerations. Thankful for his own life at that point, he realized that God had bigger plans for him, to prosper his life and keep him out of harm’s way.
In conscious pursuit of his comeback, Shareeff moved to Atlanta in 1998. He continued to struggle from a lack of preparation, bad habits, and absence of role models, and found himself homeless in Atlanta. His relationship with God led him to a church where he found the guidance he needed to get on track. Shareeff was encouraged to earn a GED and was accepted to Morehouse College where he was a Dean’s List scholar his very first semester. In 2006, he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration/Management. He also became a licensed minister and studied at Beulah Heights Bible College. Shareeff is a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.
Shareeff is aware that his personal relationship with God led him out of a life of destruction and into divine opportunities to live the life he was destined to live. His life’s mission is to help others become aware of the potential for their lives, and to facilitate greatness in the lives of many. He is a motivational speaker, personal coach, and inspirational author. Shareeff’s first book "The Challenge" was published in 2011 and is available via Amazon.
