Shaden Abushaera is the Founder and Managing Partner of HeraCloset.  I am a Mom, Feminist, and Entrepreneur. I know how challenging it is to pursue your dream and start your own business because what I fear and hate the most are unfulfilled opportunities.  I decided that I am no longer accepting the status quo.  The dream was simple; create a new world of self-expression for independent local artists and to help them sell their creations in a meaningful way.  Visit www.HeraCloset.com.
