Name / Year / Major: Shannon / Senior / Psychology and Athena Scholar
Where I’m From: Woodhaven, Michigan in the Metro Detroit Area
Favorite Program: Milk tasting is always fun! I’ve also enjoyed the many iterations of Cuntfidence / whatever it was called this year
Something I enjoy about being a peer ed: Getting to know so many members of the Barnard community that I might not meet otherwise, whether through the group of peer educators or speaking to people during office hours
Favorite WW office resource: The library!! Though I don’t use it as often as I’d like, it’s expanded my to-read list exponentially.
Favorite way of practicing self-care: Lately I’ve been really into guided meditations! I use the app Stop, Breathe, and Think and it has been really helpful for channeling nervous energy into positive energy. I’ve also heard great things about Headspace.
