How do you say your name, Shannon or CH-annon?


Why is your name spelt wrong? 

I normally tell people that it is because my Mum couldn’t spell when I was born, that is in fact, not true. Sad, I know. My name is just unique, that is all there is to it. I used to absolutely hate it because when I was little I always wanted the cup, or a bookmark, or a keyring with my name on, but I always had to settle with “Shannon” instead. However, now I’m a bit older, I love my name!

What did you study at university?

I studied Social Anthropology at The London School of Economics. I graduated in July 2017 with a 2:1 BA Hons degree in the subject. Throughout my degree, I wrote a Dissertation on False/Constructed Happiness at Disneyland as well as completing a study on the ‘Shaming’ Logic behind Dieting Clubs.

In September 2018, I start a new adventure into becoming a Primary School Teacher. I will complete my PGCE Teacher Training at Cambridge University during 2018-19.

What made you want to do Camp America?

I’ve always wanted to work at a US Summer Camp, however, I have just never had a long enough summer available to do so. In 2018, I decided to go with Camp America to New York and spend 12 weeks at a camp called “French Woods Festival of Performing Arts”. It was an incredible and invaluable experience and you can read all about it here.

Why did you start using a Bullet Journal?

I enjoy being super organised; it helps me cope with my Dyslexia and Dyspraxia. At the start of 2018, I realised that my creativity was becoming a smaller, less focused upon, aspect of my life. I’ve never been able to find the ‘perfect planner’ for me and so bullet journaling seemed the most logical solution to this problem. It’s a creative outlet that helps a lot with my self-care and wellbeing.
