Shelby is a third year majoring in Microbiology. She's from Torrance, California and loves to surf and paint in her limited free time. Shelby joined StRIVE to become more involved in her local community and strengthen her leadership skills. So far, her favorite part of StRIVE is getting to know the students at her outings a little more each week.
She has been nominated for her willingness to step up to the challenge. Although she has only been with StRIVE for the past few weeks, she has worked with a nonverbal student with considerable success. Engaging the student in our activities, she has allowed the student to demonstrate that he understands our lessons and that he is gaining a valuable mentorship.
