“Freedom begins the moment you realize someone else has been writing your story and it's time you took the pen from his hand and started writing it yourself.” Bill Moyers
About Shereen Faltas
SHEREEN FALTAS is the author of The Coolest Quote Book Eva and the Founder of Awaken The Rebel; a movement that helps people who feel disenchanted with their lives to stop settling for less and awaken their inner rebellious spirit so that they can live an extraordinary life by their design.
Born a creative type she learned early on in her traditional Egyptian upbringing that if she wasn’t a doctor, lawyer, or engineer than she would inevitably amount to nothing. In order to seem “normal” and keep everyone else happy she decided that she would forsake all her own desires to fulfill other people’s expectations. So she got a degree, landed a job, and found herself utterly miserable at the age of twenty four.
Luckily one of her best friend’s suggested she go to a seminar where she was able to Awaken her inner Rebel, and truly examine this life she had created. She decided to immediately quit her masters degree program and start doing stand up comedy. This was the official beginning of her writing her own Rebel Rule Book, and living life by her design.
She excelled in the world of stand up, and was scouted by MTV while performing at the Hollywood Improv. She was brought in to audition regularly for E!, MTV, and VH1. The truth of the matter was that as Shereen began to really write her own rules, she realized that comedy was not the end all be all for her. Instead of making people laugh, or talking about the latest celebrity mishap she felt the most fulfilled when she was inspiring others to stop settling for less and live their own rebellious extraordinary life.
This was the beginning of the Awaken The Rebel the movement where she decided to continue to make people laugh while helping them to stop settling for less and awaken their inner rebellious spirit so that they can live an extraordinary life by their design. Shereen is certified in Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), and is a Certified Professional Coach (CPC, ELI-MP) by the Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC an ICF accredited school).
She is the host of The Shereen Show on CSAT.TV where she is featured as a life purpose expert and talk show that helps people stop settling for less, and live an extraordinary life. She has also been a host on the Oprah Winfrey Recap show on Afterbuzz TV, a network founded by Maria Menounos.
She is the creator of a live event series entitled Awaken The Rebel Live; where rebels from all walks of life come together every January in Los Angeles, California to write their own rules together and live an extraordinary life.
She lives in Venice Beach where there’s an abundance of rebels to fuel the movement. She loves her dog Rambo, her convertible mini cooper named Angelina, and her amazing man Kenny. Her life is full of beautiful rebellion, and she hopes to help all those who encounter her to join the movement and have the same.
Shereen believes we are all rebels and thought leaders in our own right, and that we are all just waiting for our own opportunity to Awaken The Rebel.
