Shannon Richards

Shannon Richards was born and raised in Greer, SC.  She graduated from Greer High School in 2002.  She currently works for a large multinational financial institution in Greenville, SC, as an Account Manager.  Outside of work she spends her time with her daughter, Lauryn, teaching her how to be a strong, independent women. 

Ms. Richards was raised by her Great Aunt, as her parents were both serving time in prison.  Through it all her relatives showed her love and compassion.  She went through several struggles growing up as an adolescent and young adult which made her into the person she is today.   Over the last couple of years Shannon felt that she would turn these struggles into a positive message for young women and devoted time to writing her story.  Ms. Richards' hope is that others will read the book and be able to use her struggles to navigate through their own tough times.  In addition to the book she is also devoting time spreading her word through various religious organizations and nonprofits in and around the Upstate speaking to youth and empowering them to make a better life for themselves.
