An Open Letter From the Desk Of Sherlene
aka the Queen of Describing Cultural Descriptions
Welcome New Visitors,
Sherlene - pronounced Shir-lean or Shur-leen, or you may call me Sherry.
MARYLAND, USA - First, thank-you for visiting my humanitarian portal. I hope that you learned of my online platform from a suggestion of one of your friends, family members, or from one of my Charity Partners.
I built this independent platform to provide an online service of convenience to both families and individuals who use the world wide web, the global family.
Who Is Sherlene?
Most people who I grew up with from my hometown (Queen Anne's County, MD) reference me by my nickname, Sherry. So it's okay if you call me that, too. I am a traditional or straight female and mom: a part of the American multi-racial culture.
It Used To Be Important to Know One's Family Line
First, there is this myth/untruth that I am the American daughter (oldest child) of King Charles III and the oldest granddaughter of deceased Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II (UK). However, Her Majesty and the royal family are my distant cousins--we share the same DNA. (I didn't find out that I was multi-racial until just before my maternal grandmother's passing. It wasn't a family secret it simply wasn't discussed with me.) Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, after my grandmother had passed, was like my grandmum. The queen (Elizabeth II) had always been my female mentor about the definition and actions in being a productive 'female' public servant. Later, of how to parent while being a female leader. I have been a public servant of Maryland (Eastern Shore) since the age of 7/almost 8. Back then, as an official state-leadership role in Maryland's 4-H Youth and Development.
Also of multi-racial family line discussions, I am the valid-will Heir of the deceased William L. Wright estate (Queen Anne's County, Eastern Shore, MD). Also, valid-will Heir of the deceased Nora H. W. Wright estate (Queen Anne's County, Eastern Shore, MD). I am the family-member representative of deceased Oscar and Ethel Hicks's former estate (Kent County, Eastern Shore, MD) deceased without a valid will. Both of my family sets, my maternal (my mom's side of the family), and paternal family (my father's side of the family) are from the Deep South, USA. We are not originally from New York, USA. Can you imagine a family set who didn't have sex with each other to create its own offsprings? Well, that's mostly actions of my maternal family--What to do with us non-mentally retarded challenged folk?--in such a heavily populated relationship-dynamics said category (European/royal line cultural ways). In summary, my family sets, of several generations, do not have a majority of a family-member population with such family trauma and character traits.
I am first-marriage divorced: I was once married to my high-school classmate (Gould) for close to 17 years. Out of our marriage, we have four biological children (3 daughters, 1 son, and 1 son-in-law).
My home state of Maryland is one of the first statehoods, and our Eastern Shore counties and communities are a part of such new Americas/North America/States/United States of America. Our state has a very long statehood history (estable in the 1600s). In basic language, the white identity have preserved its former cultural mannerisms well here in the relationship of other population history of other racial identities. There are only less than 20,000 people of color in the seven counties of the Eastern Shore Island. Even today, the Eastern Shore Island is mostly of the 100% white ethnicity population.
I grew up in Queen Anne's County, Maryland (named after the UK royal family line), a population of less than 4,000 people of color. For a few years of primary education, I attended community basic schools in Kent County, Maryland with a population of less than 3,000 people of color. Early education and later years of my formal education were all in Queen Anne's County. My hometown has no official name ... Ewingtown. My hometown is Queen Anne's County.
Sherlene® I have been supporting personal and family goals since 1979 (Officially documented by the State of Maryland beginning at aged 8). I have always worked in the humanitarian or service industry (education, retail and sales, health care, government, transportation employee skill set).
It wasn't until 2005, during actions before an abrupt divorce, that I began helping communities as an informal community help desk (online and offline) while finishing my college studies.
The mission of the SNMB® news feed is to independently highlight a diverse group of formal and informal news and media sources who offer great coverage of family-appropriate news and topics. My news feed is unique because, unlike more modern computer technology, I personally gather or manually classify interesting topics to share 'that matters to families.'
WEMA® Services. Growing up, I lived near the water, the Chesapeake River on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Since 2005, I have been helping to pre-view storms: I use both science and personal experiences to suggest the patterns and actions of natural-weather storms for my Weather Emergency Management Agency (WEMA) outreach help desk/customer service.
After I was displaced from my upbringings for being too ambitious (actually for-real homeless) -- those not realizing my humanitarian heritage and the royal family-- I had a lot of time to explore my career goals. While doing so as a former business-and-communications college student, I began to use my various communication skills and online tools (newsletters, online platform, social media) to help new entrepreneurs with their online platforms like communication departments/staffers of Facebook® (META), Google®, and Avon® .... simply because I had the time to do so. I am learned/skilled in all things business concepts. I began such skill-set as a young child all the way through my high-school years. Not realizing my heritage, my formal career personality analysis or career or state tests "always" reflected leadership ability.
Lastly, I have always had the entrepreneurial spirit: I have always wanted to earn a large income to be a part of the financial-wealthy socioeconomic group of this country, of my state (Maryland). I have always known the value of the things that will "last" into the next generation, learned from my diverse-heritage line. In present day, my citizenship goal in my home state of Maryland is to become one of Maryland's consistent millionaire households. I am a Marylander whose making our state more productive to compete nationally and internationally.
Providing humanitarian services in a way that preserves and cultivates the dignity and respect of the family lifestyle.

Real-Talk, Basic Language Information
I Can't Change Me, I Am Me
I can't change-- for decline of said discrimination socially--my multi-racial identity.
I can't change-- my gender (traditional-female identity who enjoys business job titles typically assigned to men such as the leader, boss, manager.).
I can't change-- the fact that I am divorced from my first husband of 15 years. Hey, he wanted the divorce not me ... all of a sudden.
Overall, for decades of my life experiences, there were layers of horrific cultural mysteries which I discuss in my published work--until I learned of my unique and complex heritage background.
My journal-memoir, The Script In My Box: A Journal of Forgiveness, was published in August, 2012. I originally named my book "Compilation of Forgiveness." My book highlights some of my most interesting personal-life experiences (personal, family) as a Marylander living on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It was my first memoir, a published book, of priceless advice to both young and old; to both rural and urban people and families. I would like for the book to have an offer of a movie-deal opportunity where I am the assistant producer. As you know, only you can truly tell or show your story side of your life's experiences.
You are welcome here. Please take a moment to explore my online platform and all that it offers. You may phone, email, or chat with me if necessary. I am online daily.
Participation: Simply choose from the many social amusements or news articles on this platform that are appropriate for your unique household, that's it!

Local Level Community Achievement
I was the first person, citizen, in my community areas who actually wanted to open an independent family lifestyle center, back in the late 1980s - 1990s.
State Level Community Achievement
I created the 'first' formal summer-enrichment program and curriculum for public-school students in the entire state of Maryland (City of Chestertown, Maryland). My program and idea, without credit, was taken to a larger platform by the State of Maryland through its office sites of the Department of Parks and Recreation. Said staff were forced to use my youth-directed curriculum objectives as their own initiative.
I am the youngest former employee of the State of Maryland.
Faith-Based Community Achievement
GICPA: I am a Christian who has had formal training of theology, including religious studies of Methodism. I have chosen to be a GICPA member and leader because of my multi-racial ethinicity and upbringing within Methodism. Yet, I am a non-denominational friend of several church-building ministries and/or denominational sects. I am aware, woke, of the four major religions, globally: Islam, Christianity, Buddhism, and Judaism.

SHERLENE DEANNA STEVENS
Note: After a five-generation DNA lineage analysis and court appearances, I am legally bloodship kin of European royalty. My European white ancestors are from BOTH sets of my parents, maternal and paternal. My outwardly appearance only is as a person of color. Strange.
I am of northwestern German, Italian, Russian, and British including Anglo-Saxon ethnicity; Native American ethnicity; and, as a person born of an African American mother, I am less than 17% African American: African Nigeria (Yorubian) and neighboring area Caribbean country Barbados ethnicity. In such consideration, I prefer the term multi-racial ethnicity in the classification of who I am, and who my four adult-children are.
As a child of a 15-year-old multiracial female mom/mum: my life experiences' grooming were from mostly senior citizens/family members of the third-generation. Also, I was groomed of proper European royal mannerisms and etiquette. I lived in a multi-racial home environment throughout my school-age years which helped to develop my on-going compassion, appreciation, and empathy of all ethnicities, of the entire world's family tree.
Credit: My compassion of Earth's preservation and the solar system is from the upbringing that I received from those third- and fourth-generational senior citizens who lived in my hometown areas on Maryland's Eastern Shore: some were Native American senior citizens, African American senior citizens, and German American senior citizens.
