Hey! I’m Shannon. I’m from The Commonwealth of The Bahamas and currently I’m in Beijing, China.
I needed a break from my previous life situation. I was surrounded by family and had a great job that allowed me to grow creatively, but I was getting restless. I believe that I was born to fly and I declared in 2017 that 2018 would be my year of flight. So, upon hearing the stories of two friends who were in Shanghai, China, I decided to apply to work for Disney English. I was interviewed and then offered a position in Beijing. It was a little hard to believe that I was going to pack up my life once again and move away from home….but it was happening and it was happening quickly.
Fast forward to July 25 after two days of traveling, I touched down in Beijing and my adventure began. Since then, I have become official with DE, I have made beautiful friends and roommates, I have explored parts of Beijing, and I have been enjoying just about every minute of it.
There are so many people that are a part of my life’s adventures because I have met them on the way. Due to my nature, I connect with people and make lifelong friendships and this blog will hopefully be a way for me to share the fruits of their deposits into my life over the years. They are my “why.” I hope you enjoy all that you read.

Thanks for journeying with me!
