Shari Stiell-Quashie is the co-founder of Shuga N’ Spice Magazine. Growing up in Brooklyn, NY of Grenadian parentage, Shari witnessed the experiences of Caribbean immigrants and first-generation West Indians in the large Caribbean community of Brooklyn. In many instances, Shari was the sole representative of the Caribbean perspective. With that in mind and her Bachelor Degree in Literature from Bard College in tow, Shari teamed up with Alissa to create Shuga N’ Spice to empower the Caribbean voice and put our culture on the map. Currently, Shari is a first-generation Masters student at Strategic Communications at Columbia University and seeks to apply her learnings to the business.
