Shara started Ascension Eagles Cheerleaders from humble beginnings in 1996 in Newham. They have since been recognised as one of the UK's most effective youth programmes. Although they placed last in their first competition in 1997, AEC have established themselves as record breaking, history-making champions, and have been reigning Senior Coed Champions since 1998; no other cheer team in the world has held onto a National title for over a decade. Their tremendous success is evidenced not only by the hundreds of trophies which line their walls, but even more so by the thousands of young people who have been transformed through AEC. Shara hasn't only set up a successful cheerleading programme but has also set up a Leadership Team which deliver an outreach programme in the community. Over 45,000 people sessions per year are delivered through this fantastic club. Shara has also just opened London's first ever cheer gym.
