The Real Lil Herbie

Who I Am


I’m Sherrikka Myers, founder of Every 1 Voice Matters and Lil Herbie. After witnessing my first grandchild struggle with stuttering, just as I did growing up, I decided to use the same technique I used as a child, reading, as the foundation for this movement. Growing up in a single-family household with limited resources,

reading was the only tool readily available to me that helped get my stuttering under control. That’s why it’s important for me to help other kids facing the same or similar issues. Lil Herbie represents the little kid in me who stuttered and any child who is facing any issue in their life. I want to instill in children to overcome their obstacles, know that there is nothing they can’t do with hard work and to never let anyone or anything stop them from fulfilling their dreams.
