I am super excited to announce my very first art show: Shina’s Gallery African Art Show & Fundraiser. It was long overdue and I can’t wait to show you my new collection. This summer 2019, I am bringing you PURE HEAT straight from Mother Africa. This collection will be RAW and AUTHENTIC, as we will be diving into my roots, culture, and identity. We all know that it’s gonna be a hot summer but allow me to raise the temperature with Shina’s Spicy Gallery 🔥. (Spicy Collection will be showcased past bedtime 😉) It was very important to me to make it a fundraiser because I want to be able to help my community and give back, no matter how small I start. 1 painting will be sold at auction. 100% of the sales will go into sponsoring 2 kids in Cote d’Ivoire (West Africa), so they can have full access to education. The funds will go towards school tuition and fees, book supplies and transportation. I will have a lot of announcements coming up in the next few days. SOOOO! WHO’S COMING?? 😁😁
2019 will mark the 4th edition of Miss Africa Washington State Pageant. The 1st edition took place on the 3rd of September 2016 at the University of Washington. 4 years of the competition has produced more than 30 confident, more assertive and goal driven women. Today, Miss Africa Washington State has grown to be the largest African pageant in the Northwest, bringing many communities together.
