If I were to introduce myself to someone I’ve never before met, I would say, “Hi, I’m Shananana and I am an HR Diva.”
Something I am proud of that most people don’t know about me is: As an Army Recruiter, I was the recipient of the Engagement Team Member of the Year Award.
The best way to spend time off is to decompress and schedule “me” time.
The world would be a better place if we all practiced acts of kindness toward each other.
My favorite “happy” song is Cyndi Lauper’s “Girls just want to have fun.“
My hidden talent is that I am able to name that song in one note.
of my circle of friends, I am the one who always makes people laugh. My friends often tell me I should have been a comedian.
For fun, I like to travel abroad and experience new places and cultures.
One of my favorite eateries in Newport News is 2nd Street Bistro.
A quote/credo that I try to live by is “Every day may not be good, but there is something good in every day. Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory. Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations. Only I can change my life.”
A lesson I have learned working with the general public is no matter how hard we try, it is very hard to please everyone.
If I could give advice to my 13-year-old self, I would say “You only live once, so live your life to the absolute fullest and do not have any regrets. Travel the world, move away from your hometown and experience all of the amazing things this world has to offer.”
My hero is my mom. As a young single parent, my mother worked two jobs and often double shifts to provide me with the best childhood she possibly could. Seeing how hard she worked to support me inspired and motivated me to work just as hard to be successful in this life.
