Hey there! My name is Shannon Ponn and I'm a 22 year-old girl with a passion for storytelling. I created this website to provide a home for all of my professional and creative endeavors.
From graphic design work and published journalism articles, to personal blog posts and photography - all of it will be posted here to connect and share experiences. To get to know more about me, scroll down!





About Shannon Ponn

I'm a current senior at the University of California, Santa Barbara majoring in Communication and minoring in Multimedia Professional Writing. Upon graduation, I aim to continue growing, learning, and expanding my skills to find a career path that combines all of my passions.


Aside from academics, I have been lucky enough to dance at the collegiate level, performing at UCSB athletic events and competing against other Division 1 dance teams. In addition, I have also had the opportunity to evolve as a journalist, event coordinator, graphic designer, and content creator during the past four years. (Take a look at the list for some of my proud milestones!)


Camping, traveling, and basically all outdoor activites consume the rest of my spare time. I'm happiest on the sunniest of Southern California days. As I enter my defining "twenties", I will continue my bucket list goals of visiting all the U.S. National Parks and finally using my passport and traveling the world...that is when COVID-19 subsides!
