Shannon Meyers Writing has been an interest to me since I was in middle school. When I came to USD, I wanted to be a doctor but I left on the path to living out my passion as a writer. I have worked as a freelance writer since I graduated in 2014 while maintaining a variety of "day jobs". I've worked on a variety of projects including ghost writing a financial self-help book, editing a 180-page novel, and creating over 50 articles. I'm currently working on a mental health self-help book as well as a fantasy novel.  lthough my personal career path has taken a lot of twists and turns, I have no regrets.
