Platform: “The Business of Service”
I’ve not rested on my laurels or wasted a day ONE BIT. I’ve used the time since I was selected for this opportunity in this incredible arena for individuals from all walks of life to make every moment count, being PROACTIVE and putting PASSION and PURPOSE to this platform. I believe service IS THE way to develop leadership skills on and off the job. “My platform is about cultivating corporate partnerships (the business sector) with civic organizations to coalition and promote service opportunities that strengthen our workforce and above all else strengthen a resolve to build stronger communities. It’s worked for me. I’ve volunteered since I was in high and college and it’s made a positive difference in my life, setting me a part as a leader who is defined not just by words…but by action. I’ve impacted and changed lives…starting first with my own….to know and understand that everyone has a civic responsibility to give back, take part and take ownership of the communities in which we all live. And when you volunteer, when you make service as much a priority as getting ahead, YOU DO GET AHEAD. You become a leader, you develop networking skills, a positive sense of self and self-confidence, you sharpen your communication skills, you stand taller and shine brighter, because the leader within you is being refined. Again, these aren’t just my words, it’s my self-testimony…of a girl from the inner-city Bronx who developed into a state and nationally recognized leader.”
Shawn has the distinction of being included in several outstanding registries including Marquis Who’s Who Among Outstanding Professional Women, Biltmore Who’s Who in America and Black America’s Who’s Who. Shawn also belongs to many professional organizations including Business and Professional Women’s Clubs/USA, RTNDA, NABJ, SPJ and the National Federation of Press Women.
