I picked up a camera at 13 to film my aunt's pregnancy. At the time, I didn't realize that my small act of faith would be the seed that would grow into my purpose.
With a 1 GB memory card, I created a video on windows media player with cheesy stars and hearts transitions. I burned what I called a “movie” on a DVD.
13 year-old Shaunii created a masterpiece!
My passions helped me grow my roots in college where I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications with a focus on Audio/Video.
Although my seed was deeply rooted, at the time, I felt like it wasn't blooming fast enough.
I began to lose my confidence. During this time, I compared myself to other people on social media. I lost mentors and friends. I lost my job. I was in a toxic relationship. I was a broke social media intern and video freelancer praying to gain a single video client so that I could put gas in my car. I began to slip into a dark space and I couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. I began to sell my equipment. I stopped watering my seed.
I told GOD that I was tired and my future was gone.
I was depressed.
God replied, "TRY AGAIN!"
The seed that was planted at 13, suddenly began to grow out of the dirt and into a sturdy stem. I earned and currently hold a position as Director of Digital Media for one of the largest non-franchised real estate firms in Georgia. In this position, I direct and coach 60+ agents with their digital media needs. I also create and curate content for the company's social media platforms. The company recently ranked as one of the TOP 40 Real Estate Brokerages in America on Social Media on Property Spark.
Working with diverse Hustlers, Entrepreneurs, CEOs, and Tycoons guided me to my purpose.
My purpose is to use my knowledge of film and pageantry to transform and teach people how to use digital media in a positive, uplifting, and confident way.
My goal is to shine a positive light on you, give you a voice, and document your legacy. It fuels me to know that I have the ability to create with my tools something that will be cherished for years to come.
My hope for the future is that the stories I produce will motivate the next generation to be dynamic storytellers, strong game changers, and disruptive innovators.
You should feel at home here. Enjoy! I hope to connect with you soon.
