Hometown: North Tustin, California

Gender: female

About me: Hi! My name is Shannon and I'm a third-year student double-majoring in CHID and Communication. After my undergraduate career, I plan to obtain a post-graduate degree before entering academia as a profession. I'm originally from Southern California, and UW was both an unexpected choice for me and a difficult adjustment. Now, however, I'm truly enjoying my time here, especially within Honors. Feel free to contact me with any questions about Honors classes, being out-of-state, housing, majors, study abroad, getting involved on campus, adjusting to college life, or anything else!
