A word from Shannon:
My Name is Shannon Smith and I am 18 years old from Fulshear, Texas (right outside of Houston). I am the daughter of Eric and Holly Smith and I have an older sister, Ashley. I love cheerleading and have been cheering since 6th grade. I hope to one-day cheer at college. I am a freshman at Baylor University majoring in business with plans to use my degree and love of traveling to one day open and manage my very own resort or hotel. I’m obsessed with traveling and could see myself living in a resort if I was able to. California is my favorite place to travel to because I love their beaches! When I’m not traveling, studying, or trying to maintain my spot on the Dean’s List, I also enjoy being a member of the Kappa Alpha Theta sorority and attending sporting events to cheer on the Baylor Bears. I am a typical girly girl and love the color PINK, bows, and dresses.
