About Me

Hi everyone, I’m Shannon! I am twenty one years old and currently working towards an English master’s degree 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.

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. 

By the time I was getting ready to move away to college, I had started writing for the Odyssey Online, where I wrote weekly articles until March of 2019. In February of 2018, I joined the Stony Brook Her Campus chapter as a senior writer. I have been fortunate to have been able to cover a wide range of topics, from current events, to fashion and beauty, to astrology! 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.
