My name is Shannon Mitchell and I am a recent graduate of Florida State University, with a BA in English, focusing on Editing, Writing, and Media, with a minor in Communications. Throughout my college years, I have been involved in supporting our military. I have previously held the Webmaster Chair position for the Thank A Soldier Organization of FSU. By holding this position, I was able to not only develop a greater audience within the cyber world and bring awareness to the organization, but I also helped organize events, in which the general student populace was able to gain awareness in a fun manner. In addition, by creating these events, I learned organizational skills that have helped me to work in an orderly fashion, transferring over to my current positions. I have also had the opportunity to be the editing intern at the Veteran’s Center of FSU. This position gave me insight on the lives of student veterans and allowed me to work alongside them in order to help make our university more veteran-friendly. Within this position, I was also able to assist students with writing assignments, and projects. It gave me the experience of working alongside others, while also gaining experience within my field of study. I am also currently holding the position of Webmaster with FSU Communications’ Creative Services to develop the new website for the Veteran’s Center of FSU. Throughout these experiences, as well as developing my own personal page, I hope to gather enough experience to aid me in my search of a future career. Though my dream career is to work with the military as a civilian, continuing the path that I am currently on, I have also gained insight into Public Relations, and an interest due to my position as Webmaster. My job requires me to work diligently, and in a timely manner, meeting deadlines, in order to publish works on the website on designated days. This has furthered my organizational skills, and has also showed me how to work with other people in order to gather the necessary content to write. Through all these experiences, I have gained more than basic and necessary people skills, developing personal relationships and great networking opportunities.
I like to maintain a professional side, however, I am a fun person to be around, who has let every experience, opportunity, failure, and event shape who I am today. As mentioned, I am hoping that my current positions allow me to seek a future with working with the military. More information can be found here.
I have an extreme love for God and firmly believe that He sent His son Jesus Christ to die on the cross and be resurrected to allow us to be forgiven for our sins and reunited with God in Heaven by simply believing that God is the Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End. Though I am far from perfect, I strive to be the godly woman who I am supposed to be every day.
God is always going to be my number one focus. I do value my family and friends, though, and would do anything for them. I tend to be a compassionate person, who tries to help in any way possible, and lend a listening ear.
I was born and raised in Salt Lake City, Utah, and moved to Florida when I was eleven years old. I miss the beauty of the West, but am blessed to be in the Bible belt, in order to grow my faith through the Baptist Church, unlike the dominantly Mormon atmosphere in Utah.
