When “I” becomes replaced


by “we” even illness becomes



Lending a Helping Hand


Sharpe Minded Cultural Center was founded in December 2019, by Sherard Sharpe and set into motion in January of 2021. The aim of our nonprofit organization is to offer opportunities in the music and fashion industry to individuals with immune-compromised diseases. By taking time to talk to, teach, and mentor underprivileged individuals, we are able to help them achieve their dreams with less stress and more confidence. 

Sherard Sharpe

Sherard Sharpe is a former model and business mogul located in California. After becoming diagnosed with Lupus, he decided to dedicate his time and energy to helping individuals with auto-immune disorders achieve their dreams. This cause is something dear to his heart as he can relate to the struggles that people with disabilities face on a daily basis. Using his passion and drive, he has set aside resources to aid underprivileged individuals with the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the music and fashion industries. 

All proceeds donated to SMCC are used to fund the resources needed to help immune-compromised individuals further their knowledge and develop the skills they need to succeed in the music and fashion industries. 
Charity services are offered in person as well as online via zoom. Services include training in modeling, music, fashion, and how to conduct oneself when in an interview. Mentors are prepared to help their mentees build confidence, lower stress, and discover their passion in the entertainment industry. 
SMCC mentors are available weekdays from 8:00 am until 6:00 pm CST.
