IMG_0384Hi Everyone! As you have probably guessed, I am Shannon! I am a twenty one year old currently working towards my Master of Arts in English at St. John’s University. I graduated from Stony Brook University with my bachelor’s degree in English in May of 2020. My dream job would be writing for an online publication or in the editorial department of a publishing house.

I was born on November 22, 1999 in New York City. From an early age I showed a passion for reading and writing, with some of my earliest pieces being published in my elementary school’s literary magazine. I began reading before I even started school, and was always delighted to curl up with a book in my free-time as I was growing up.

When I was attending Msgr. McClancy Memorial High School, I began showing significant promise in my advanced placement courses, particularly English and math, and even went on to take college-level courses in these subjects. By the time I was getting ready to move away to college, I had started writing for the Odyssey Online (@shannonconnors), where I continued to write weekly articles about a wide range of topics until April of 2019. In February of 2018, I began writing for the Stony Brook Her Campus chapter, where even more of my writing can be found, with new content being posted weekly throughout the semester. In the future, I would love to have my work published on even more platforms and branch out into topics I haven’t covered yet, as well as one day write my own novel.
