Hi, I’m Shanice. I’m a PhD student at UNC Chapel Hill in the Department of Communication. I earned a M.A. in Communication Studies from UNC Charlotte. I also hold a B.A. in English and a B.A. in Political Science from North Carolina Central University.
My research engages with Black feminism, critical health communication, and media studies (with an emphasis on social media + podcasting). Broadly, I study Black womxn’s well-being discourses on social media. I am interested in the ways in which these online spaces complicate how we think about health, agency, Black womxnhood, and Black digital practice. I’m currently working on a qualitative study about Black womxn long distance runners on Instagram.
In addition to my academic research, I’m the founder of Her Guided Evolution, a digital platform dedicated to helping Black womxn create space for their well-being and personal growth. I’m also a (twin) mom of 3, vegan, long distance runner, techie, web designer, and yoga enthusiast.
I was featured on the Somatic Podcast in October 2020. I discussed the importance of diversifying modern postural yoga by highlighting and supporting Black women’s digital yoga spaces.
The Black Mom Collective
I was featured on The Black Mom Collective in July 2020. I discussed my experiences with motherhood, belonging, and navigating graduate school as a mother.
I’m currently booking virtual events for 2021. I can discuss a range of topics including, but not limited to:
- – Black womxn’s health and well-being
- – Intersection of social media and health
- – Time management, motherhood, and self-care
- – Podcasting and social change
