Cheryl Worrell Brown

Founder/Executive Producer, o2ex Boston Fashion Week Models on a Mission 

From an early age, Cheryl has defied all odds. Growing up in the rural south during the segregation era in a town governed by Jim Crow laws,  Cheryl chose to rise never accepting the words ' You Can't'.

Cheryl grew up in the rural south. Petersburg, VA sat near the capital of confederacy, and was the very location where Robert E. Lee’s surrender ended the civil war. Her town was governed by Jim Crow laws and blatantly ruled by the Klu Klux Klan. All spaces, public and private were segregated. Schools, hospitals, stores, workplaces, pools and recreation centers remained separate for Blacks and Whites. During this dark period, Cheryl was born and raised, a flower growing beneath concrete.

Daily, during her childhood, bricks of degradation and doubt were stacked on top of that concrete. Every day, when she and her family were told they couldn't do something - her mother would always say  "there is no such thing as can't". Cheryl's mother was inspired by her parents Elizabeth and Govan Worrell, who were business owners, ministers and community leaders. Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. personally recruited her mother during his early years and registered her to join the movement. 
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening.”
— Coco Chanel
