Filling in the Gaps with Sheena Smith

“She didn’t know what it meant when as a young girl she couldn’t stop designing spaces in her head. And it would take happenstance to help her to put a profession onto her passion. My sister Howard University School of Architecture Alum is now a talented international Architect. In college we hung out all the time, but never talked about faith. Now, 30 years later, she attributes her survival and success to God’s hand on her life. With her recent move from Bermuda to north-western Canada, where she is surrounded by nature, she’s looking forward to her next chapter. Listen to the end of this discussion and drink in the faith of another successful god-fearing F50Woman.”
