Sheree Corniel

Founder/Executive Director
Hello, my name is Sheree D. Corniel, and I am the founder of Real Talk. 
With more than 20 years in law enforcement, I am intimately familiar witht the penal system and the recidivisim rate of children and adults who go through it. 

That experience inspired me to create Real Talk, which aims to keep children from ever entering the system by showing them there are positive options. Growing up in Carson, CA, I was a witness to what can go wrong when children don't have positive influences in their lives. 

My vision is to save as many lives as I can through preparing a positive road map for kids and providing them the tools needed to become all that they are destined to be. 

I credit the Bautista family for creating an opportunity for a positive change for me through competitive fastpitch softball; which led to an athletic college scholarship, and ultimately to me becoming an Olympian. 

Now, I want to give our youth that same opportunity.
