(NEW YORK, NY), April 11, 2014 – Motivational speaker, businesswoman and author Bershan Shaw is set to co-star in “Love in the City,” a brand new docu-series on OWN: The Oprah Winfrey Network, scheduled to premiere on April 12, 2014. The show will feature the fast-paced lives of four fabulous friends living in New York City – Bershan, Chenoa, Kiyah and Tiffany.
Viewers will be introduced to Bershan Shaw as a survivor – in every sense of the word. After surviving breast cancer in 2007, Bershan was diagnosed with Stage 4 breast cancer in 2009 and told she only had three months to live. This devastating news sent her on a journey to change her life and help others. As a motivational speaker, certified Life Coach and a spokesperson for the Johns Hopkins Medical Breast Cancer Vaccine, Bershan has been helping young women realize their potential and take care of their mind, body and soul.
Armed with newfound purpose and to make an impact, Bershan’s life goal is to help people reinvent themselves, step into their greatness and find their warrior within. With a mission to inspire others to not live in fear and silence, she founded the URAWARRIOR platform, which includes the “Warrior Wall” – an online campaign to encourage, support and to allow people to share their voice.
On the URAWARRIOR.com site, people from all walks of life can upload videos, photos and share their stories of overcoming adversity. Bershan Shaw founded the site to show others that everyone can heal through human connection and encourages people to share their stories – just as she was open with hers. The full social networking site, will launch in early May 2014, and will feature exclusive access such as creating profiles and engaging with others in the community one on one.
As an extension of the URAWARRIOR platform, Bershan is also launching a URAWARRIOR jewelry line and a new eBook, “URAWARRIOR: 365 Ways to Challenge You to a Better Life,” to be released in May 2014.
