REVIEWS-"Sheryl portrayed Eleanor Roosevelt in such a manner that truly brought her and her passions alive to the audience. She was engaging and spectacular. Her professionalism and research was evident through the interpretation. What I loved most about her performance was that she humanized Mrs. Roosevelt, by bringing the viewer through the stages of her life, and was still able to capture the strength and courage of Eleanor, which made her the “First Lady of the World”
.-“Sheryl Faye brought the real Eleanor Roosevelt to life! The actual presentation involved an elaborate set-up geared to walk viewers through the Eleanor’s important life moments that helped make her the woman she was. Sheryl has a commanding presence. Her ability to make us feel what Eleanor felt at those key moments, actually brought tears to many in the audience. Many people have written about Eleanor, however Sheryl managed to not only give us information, but to inspire us to be better, do better, and not let our fears stop us from becoming all we can be. Thank you Sheryl for all your hard work. I wish everyone could see this presentation.
-"Sheryl Faye provided a most compelling, persuasive portrayal of Eleanor Roosevelt, “First Lady of the World!” Captivating attendees with likeness of Eleanor’s voice…following her story of life. Sheryl is a most engaging talented actress! Strongly recommend her presentations of Historical Women!"
