August 6, 2019 – Houston: Voyage Houston Magazine, in its “Houston’s Most Inspiring Stories” section, features Sherry Byrd as one of “West Loop’s Rising Stars.”
Here in Houston we enjoy one of the most culturally diverse communities in the United States. That is a real plus for an artist. Whether it’s music, dining, theater, visual arts or science and technology, Houston offers it. There’s never a dull moment.
If there was something I’d change about this place, I’d have to say the traffic, the heat, and the flooding which seems to happen on almost a yearly basis. Also, we have some of the biggest cockroaches I’ve ever seen; and I’ve seen some big ones.
