Speaker Bios

  • Sharon Miller (P.K.A. Pri the Honeydark)

    Sharon Miller is a Brooklyn-born award-winning hip hop artist, portrait photographer, visual artist, and creative educator from Queens, New York. Miller, professionally known in the entertainment industry as “Pri the Honeydark,” experienced many childhood adversities, including homelessness. It was through an introduction to the creative arts as a child that Miller began to realize her own possible greatness, and used the arts as a means to overcome her childhood obstacles. Her early introduction to the arts would later transform into a plethora of award-winning creative skills including photography, carpentry, visual and interior styling, scenery construction, music production and performance, as well as fine arts.

    Understanding where she came from, Miller is a passionate believer in using her art for social change — with a heavy focus on creative youth within marginalized communities. She founded an independent organization called The Creative Youth Society where she teaches New York City community youth the skills that empower them to seek careers within creative industries. Miller also teaches visual arts within public school and non-profit sectors, and was recently named Sony Camera’s Sony Alpha Female 2021.
