Shea Daniels is a junior majoring in English and creative writing, and minoring in Spanish. This is her first quarter worker at the Women’s Center, although she is no stranger to the center as a co-founder of Ohio University student group Future Women of Appalachia (FWA). Shea currently serves as FWA’s director of Big Ideas.
At the Women’s Center, Shea is currently planning a teen outreach program, as well as re-organizing the center’s library. “We have a new ‘take one, leave one’ section (in the library) — check it out!” she said.
Shea’s interests include knitting, fishing, hiking and walking, and writing. She is also very interested in the ways literature, and other forms of social media, conceptualized the different roles men and women have in Appalachia. “I am interested in how accent changes the perceptions of character’s intelligence, social class, etc., and the ways in which accent and culture are utilized in literature and other forms of media,” Shea said.
Shea’s favorite Women’s Center event is International Women’s Day, and said she enjoys working at the Women’s Center because every day and each week is different. “There’s always different people coming in and different projects to work on,” she said.
