Shannon is currently in her senior year as a McBride Scholar at Bryn Mawr College. She is working toward her Bachelors degree in English Literature with a concentration in Gender and Sexuality. Prior to transferring to Bryn Mawr, she studied at the Community College of Philadelphia and participated in their Liberal Arts Honors Curriculum, which is designed prepare students for the transition to four year colleges. Shannon's involvement in such programs led her to run for Advocacy Mistress of the McBride Scholars program at BMC so she could help other students like herself with the sometimes daunting transition from a community college or the workplace to Bryn Mawr. Her interests include graphic narrative, film, American Popular Culture, and social justice. She hopes to someday combine the skills she is learning at BMC with her interest in pop culture as a cultural critic.
