Today we’d like to introduce you to Shana Hannibal.
Hi Shana, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
I grew up in Orangeburg, South Carolina and attended College of Charleston. While there, I earned a degree in education, and later a Master’s degree in education from Capella University. After graduation, I moved to Charlotte and taught in South Carolina for 6 years. While teaching , I earned my second degree in Administration from University of South Carolina. Currently, I am an assistant principal and author.
I began writing as an outlet. It provides relief and entertainment. I prefer children’s books, but I occasionally write academic pieces as I prepare for professional development presentations.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey have been a fairly smooth road?
It has not always been a smooth road. I got married and had my children right out of college. Juggling work, my master’s programs and writing has been tough. I always have to find balance.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I taught English for 10 years before becoming an assistant principal and writer. Being an avid reader, I wanted more black love stories and mysteries. I also wanted more black stories for women like me. So, I decided to fill the gap.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with our readers?
If you have a bookclub or social event and would like a guest speaker, please invite me.
