This week’s episode of the 1 Girl Revolution Podcast features Sherelle Hogan, founder of the Pure Heart Foundation. Sherelle has a tragic, beautiful, and powerful life story to share. Both of Sherelle’s parents were incarcerated when she was young and while they were incarcerated, she was abused. Then shortly after her father got out, he died when she was just 10 years old. The first years of Sherelle’s life were filled with heartache, pain, and suffering, but as she tells in this episode, when she was 14 years old a mentor encouraged her to find light in the darkness… and Sherelle did just that.

Though her upbringing was harrowing, Sherelle found purpose in her journey and turned her adolescent experience into her life's work through the Pure Heart Foundation. Vowing to be an advocate for children of incarcerated parents and ensuring that other children in similar situations are not only heard but that they aren’t forgotten.
