INSPIRE BY SHIKA MY’CHELLE LLC
Though INSPIRE By Shika My'Chelle was officially born in 2017, nothing about this brand was created overnight... It was actually 18 years in the making for Owner and CEO, Yashika M. Stewart! INSPIRE By Shika My’Chelle is a real-life testimony of God's perfect timing.
A DELAY IS NOT A DENIAL!
As a Senior at Wyandanch Memorial High School, she also studied Fashion and Merchandising at Wilson Tech in Dix Hills, NY where she immediately fell in love with it. In 1998 after graduating, she married her high school sweetheart with plans to attend college for Fashion and Merchandising. God had other plans though and shortly after getting married, she found out she was pregnant. Not wanting anyone else to raise her child, she made the decision to put off school and focus on taking care of her family.
A CHANGE IS COMING…
In 2013, God called her to do something greater, something completely out of her comfort zone. He gave her an assignment and the vision to create Beautifully Unique Inc. Beautifully Unique Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that primarily focuses on the youth and being a community support organization. Whether it was planning and hosting youth events, mentoring, volunteering within the schools, donating to other organizations, giving back to the community or planning and hosting women empowerment events, after 3 years of working non-stop as Founder and CEO, Yashika started feeling a little burnt-out. She knew the vision & mission for Beautifully Unique Inc. was much bigger than her and giving up wasn’t an option, not feeding her creative side was leaving her emotionally drained.
Even in knowing that she needed to tap into her creativity, she wasn’t sure what direction God was calling her in. Getting back to Music was the first choice for those around her; and though she loved singing and creating music, she had learned to listen solely for God’s voice when it came to making decisions. After praying and asking God to reveal it to her… HE FINALLY DID! It was time to get back to what she had walked away from 18 years prior… Fashion!
YOU ARE THE VOICE OF THE VOICELESS, THE FORGOTTEN AND THE REJECTED… I HAVE CALLED YOU TO EMPOWER, UPLIFT, EDUCATE AND “INSPIRE”!
Not knowing where to start, she started writing down positive messages, quotes and conceptions in her notebook. She knew that whatever God was calling her to do next still needed to compliment and work alongside Beautifully Unique Inc. Though she did not have a name for the company, Yashika knew that she had to create a brand that promoted positive images, self-care, empowerment, strength, courage, pride and self-confidence. It was her desire to create a brand that was INCLUSIVE to all races, genders, sizes and ages, yet stood alone and still represented HER... and then it came to her, "INSPIRE By Shika My’Chelle". What started with just inspirational tees, God expanded in 2020 into an entire line filled with Handmade Self-Care products in the middle of a pandemic.
Trust and Believe in God and watch your mind be BLOWN!
