Sharina Annette Jones was born in Pontiac, Michigan. When she was just five years old, Sharina was the victim of a shooting. This event left her unable to walk for the rest of her life. More importantly, however, it was the beginning of the unveiling of Sharina's purpose in life; to inspire others to reach their greatest potential.
After graduating high school she continued her education and attended Mott Community College, earning an Associate's degree; the first in her family to attend college. She continued her education and earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Oakland University, and an MBA from Wayne State University in 2008.
In addition to her academic success, Sharina was crowned Ms. Wheelchair Michigan in 2011. She has used her crown as a platform to impact the lives of others in a positive way. She established the organization, Think Beyond the Chair, to provide hope, healing and resources to others in the community faced with circumstances like hers. Her first book, Life of a Push Goddess, is one of her favorite accomplishments. She is currently writing her second book, Not All Goddesses Are Alike. Her long list of achievements also includes participation in the Detroit Free Press Marathon and tossing out the first ball in a Detroit Tigers opening season game.
But when asked, it is her marriage to Grover Jones in May of 2010 that brings Sharina the most joy. In addition to writing, Sharina enjoys hand cycling, wheelchair basketball and swimming. She and her husband also love to travel; Jamaica being the favorite vacation getaway location.

For more than 30 years, Chicagoan Stanley Wrice languished behind prison walls, convicted for a crime of rape he didn't commit, another victim of torture by police under the command of the now disgraced former police commander Jon Burge. In addition to beating a false confession out of Mr. Wrice, police also beat a witness into giving false testimony. In 1982, Mr. Wrice was sentenced to 100 years in prison. In a case that went all the way to the Supreme Court, Stanley Wrice was released last week, after over 30 years behind bars, one of the many wrongfully convicted victims of police torture. Is it possible to forgive and move on with one's life after being robbed of one's youth? What is fair compensation for such a loss? What should happen to the torturers?
