Her Story

Once there was a little shy girl who was named after a Goddess. She wanted desperately to represent love and beauty for her namesake. So God placed her among roses and thorns. She blossomed!

Welcome to a place where we can still watch Venus Rising and find inspiration as she helps you rise to your fullest potential because she sees the God in you! Venus is on a mission to transform more girls into Goddesses with her She Rose workshops and she’s looking to promote unsung S/heroes among us. Shero is a term she coined in 2006 with the release of her debut book “She Rose” and it’s since spread far and wide. Venus is a former MTV Online correspondent, radio personality, actress, and writer, who’s opened for Def Poetry on Broadway and partnered with Ms. Magazine, Spoken Vizions, African Voices, and after school programs like Boys and Girls Clubs of America, and Girls Inc. She’s also the author of Lyrics for Langston and four empowering spoken word CDs. This accomplished actress and poet is determined to let her little light shine, like a star that’s down to Earth.

If you are alive then it’s still possible! May you keep the FAITH in yourself, your community, and your nation.
