Shrista Tyree is a Comedian, host, rapper and also a Part time Petco employee. Currently chasing the dream of being a stand-up comedian, rapper and whatever else She so happens to fall in love with.
People always ask me what has inspired me to chase my dreams, who do I look up to? But in all honesty, I am my own inspiration. I was raised by a Single mother who suffered with drug addiction. Everyday as a kid i aspired to do and be everything people told me i couldn’t. I graduated high school, because they told me i couldn’t. I got a Bachelor's Degree because they told me i couldn’t. Now i’m chasing a dream people are telling me is a waste of time. Everyones a rapper, you won’t make it. Everyones a comedian, you wont make it. Comedy is my main goal but I’d rather give stand up comedy a chance then to be sitting in front of TV watching Kevin Hart and wishing i tried that “Comedy thing”. Nothing inspires me more than my own story.
Shrista will appear at the March 10th, 2019 My Real Portland.
