State Representative Shannon D.

“I use my strength and confidence to include others and to make them feel confident as well.”

-Shannon

Why Shannon D. was Nominated:

Shannon has continuously proved an excellent student leader. She is attentive, respectful and eager to learn everything she can. She has an immense amount of empathy and shows it in her daily interactions. I once watched her walking down the hallway, with no one else watching, and saw a student eating alone. She invited the student to eat lunch with her, not realizing the student spoke primarily Spanish. Shannon brought the student to the room, opened Google Translate and started a conversation with the student. I watched in awe as Shannon corralled a group of students to engage in conversation with this student who otherwise would have eaten lunch alone, in silence.

I’m Golden

I started learning a lesson about the time I was eighteen that I’ve kept learning throughout my life. And that lesson is that every new phase of life brings a new challenge that I’m going to have to deal with – especially when I think I’m golden.

The Secret about Body Shaming

Perhaps the most common form of bullying is what’s become known as “body shaming.” This, obviously, involves making fun of our bodily imperfections or differences. It is especially easy to get upset by such insults because we tend to be sensitive about our bodies. We all want to look good and to be seen as perfect. Thus, when people make fun of things that we, ourselves, have difficulty accepting, we feel hurt and humiliated. It’s bad enough that we badger ourselves about what’s “wrong” with our bodies. We hope that others don’t notice, and we hate it when they bring it out into the open with an insult.

Finding the Pathway to Your Light

Fear tells us that we’re about to go through something difficult without guidance, and that we are alone. It tells us we won’t make it through to the other side. And, most of all, when a glimmer of light does show up as hope, fear is right there to tell us it’s not worth moving towards. Fear loves it when we don’t move.
