Welcome to my site!
This blog was created originally in my Digital Journalism II class with Professor Herbert Lowe. His class taught me more than I like to admit and was grateful for the intense high expectations he set for his students. I am now a graduate of Marquette University with a Bachelor of Arts degree with a Social Welfare and Justice major and a Journalism major.
I have a passion for social justice and social activism. I believe not only does everyone have a unique story, they also deserve equal rights. In 2011, I studied abroad in Cape Town, South Africa for five months at the University of the Western Cape and also interned at Tembaletu School for Learners with Special Educational Needs with the South Africa Service Learning Program. I also spent a year interning for WINS for Children, Inc. where I coordinated the 2013 Academic Olympics for the Lindsey Heights community of Milwaukee, Wis. I completed a year of volunteer service for Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest learning an incredible amount about myself, love, my community, and Alaska. I decided to stay in Sitka after my year of service and am now working at SEARHC Mt. Edgecumbe Hospital in the administration department.
Many people ask how much longer I'll be in Alaska. The truth is, I have no idea. I didn't plan on being here this long, but it is working out for what I need right now. I have fallen in love with the mountains, ocean, and town. It has become my home...for now.
I'm not the best with keeping up with this blog, but I miss writing and have set goals to write in it more frequently.
I invite feedback and constructive criticism on anything I post. Please feel free to comment or contact me via the contact form.
My name is Shoshauna. I'm a proud feminist and loyal cheesehead. I love fiercely and am passionately trying to accomplish my dreams.
Flowers, kitchen dance parties, avocados, the sun, and irish exiting are few of my favorite things.
