Turning Passion Into Action



Our founder, Sharla Walker, turned her passion for young adults into action. The creation of Hearts Over Habits, Inc. was a response to need for mentoring and life skills for young women in at risk communities. "I want to empower young women to build purposeful and fulfilling lives. Our programs aim to provide the tools and community needed for those who may not have the same opportunities as others."
