HI! I'M SHANNON HURST

WELCOME TO MY DIGITAL RESUME AND PORTFOLIO!

I was born and raised in Hoover, AL, a suburb of Birmingham also known as the "Magic City". I have an older sister and a younger brother who love Auburn as much as I do. I grew up in a home filled with a lot of love and laughter, where my parents instilled important values in me such as dedication, compassion and honesty. I have spent my entire life living by these values and consider myself a kind-hearted person who has a passion for serving others. They also taught me to work hard in order to achieve my goals. I have never been afraid to go after what I want to accomplish!


Although I love working hard in school and doing my best, I do manage to find time for other things I enjoy. I love spending time with friends and family, relaxing and watersports at Lake Martin, and cheering on the Auburn Tigers. I also love to travel. For several years my family has taken a New Year's trip to some fabulous places. From freezing temperatures to tropical islands, this tradition has kept my family close and has taught me so much about different cultures. The memories I have made with my family on these trips are something I will always treasure!


I am currently a senior at Auburn University majoring in Public Relations. When I began attending Auburn in 2014, I considered nursing (funny how things change) because I've always enjoyed helping others. As my college career progressed, I realized my skill set was a better fit for the public relations field. I am so fortunate that I have truly found a major I am passionate about. I love to write and meet new people and getting to do that every day is a dream come true. I cannot believe my time at Auburn University is soon coming to an end, but I am so eager to begin my career in the fast-paced industry of public relations.
