MEET OUR TEAM: Idelette Talks with Chervelle Camille


A Video Conversation -with Idelette and Chervelle4

I thought it’s about time we introduce you to our SheLoves team members and give you a glimpse into the heart and stories of the women who make this community run. Today, I am talking with Chervelle Camille who is responsible for creating the daily graphics on SheLoves. I’ve known Chervelle for many years—we’ve shared a lot of life. One of my favourite moments in the  SheLoves circle that we both attend, is when Chervelle walks into the room. Even when she has a cold or PMS, she inspires me with how she puts herself together. She takes care. She doesn’t create art only on a canvas, she sees life, spaces and our bodies as a canvas.

We’re talking books, moving to a new country as a young girl, singleness and creativity. I hope you’re as inspired as I am, simply by being in her presence. If you’d like to see how she lives out her life, follow her on Instagram at @chervelleca.

much LOVE,

I like soggy cereal and I would like to go to every spot on the map of the earth to meet our world’s women. I dream of a world where no women or girls are for sale. I dream of a world where women and men are partners in doing the work that brings down a new Heaven on earth. My word last year was “roar” and I learned it’s not about my voice rising as much as it is about our collective voices rising in unison to bring down walls of injustice. This year, my own word is “soar.” I have three children and this place–right here, called–is my fourth baby. I am African, although my skin colour doesn’t tell you that story. I am also a little bit Chinese, because my heart lives there amongst the tall skyscrapers of Taipei and the mountains of Chiufen. Give me sweet chai and I think I’m in heaven. I live in Vancouver, Canada and I pledged my heart to Scott 11 years ago. I believe in kindness and calling out the song in each other’s hearts. I also believe that Love covers–my gaps, my mistakes and the distances between us. I blog at and tweet @idelette.

  • I propped my tiny screen against a shelf of cookbooks and savored this conversation as I prepared breakfast this morning. What a great beginning to my day, and the idea of filling my canvas is filling my imagination right now.

    Chervelle, you’re a gift to this community. Thank you for all your efforts behind the scenes, and, Idelette, thank you for asking the questions and creating the environment.

    • Filling my canvas. I loved that idea and challenge as well, Michele!

    • “Savoured this conversation” I love this picture of you working your hands to nourish yourself as you listened.
      Another wonderful way to “fill your canvas!”

      Thank you for always loving on this community, Michele. Xx

  • Yay!! Love that you’re doing this.

    This is great ! I loved hearing the “making of sheloves”. We benefit the results of all your hard work but to actually hear about the process of posting the blog each day adds a wonderful depth. Thank you 🙂 xoxo

  • Roos Woller

    This was so refreshing and lovely to get to meet and get to know you a bit better Chervelle.

    • Right? Even though we spend time with Chervelle, there’s something about an interview that draws out new ways of seeing each other. I agree.

    • Awe, thank you, Roosie!! I’m like an onion, layer by layer…you’ll eventually get to the center 😉

  • Megan Gahan

    Chervelle, you’re my favourite! I streamed this through my TV, and just wanted to jump through the screen and squeeze you! Miss you, friend – I wish you weren’t so far away. Love love love xxxx

    • Haha, in retrospect, that would be a fun feature to have! Miss you, too my friend!!

      Ps, we need to be email pen pals rather than messenger.
