Grow Into Leadership

Psychology Major Found Community, Self Through Service

Not all knowledge is found in a textbook or echoing through a lecture hall. For Michelle Shannon, it required a deeper look. She discovered that knowledge comes from paying attention to your surroundings: what we can see, hear, mimic and find, particularly in the people we most admire.

It’s this knowledge, she said, that has given her a better understanding of the world and her place in it. A self-identified lesbian from age 12, Michelle found opportunities to get involved and volunteer at the University of Idaho that were not as available to her in the small town in which she grew up. This included clubs and organizations affiliated with the campus LGBTQA community like the Gender and Sexuality Alliance (GSA) and Feminist Led Activist Movement to Empower (FLAME), as well as UI’s Women’s Center.

Michelle also worked in UI Professor Russell Jackson’s virtual reality lab. In the lab, she explored coding, computer science and the possibility of graduate school. She also spent time in Boise, as a delegate for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders at the state caucus.

“Michelle’s work has been fantastic,” said Professor Jackson. “Her leadership stems from her broad expertise in human behavior, combined with her psychology background.”

“I wanted to (be) part of this community.”
- Michelle Shannon
