Hi y'all, I'm ShanTil! If you couldn't tell, I'm a southerner. I moved up here from Texas last summer, and even though it might break my momma's heart for me to say this, New England has truly become home to me. I'm in my second semester here at SLIS, and decided to go the "Design Your Own" degree route. My plan is to focus in on rare and special collections, but I'm also developing a passion for public libraries--I recently started working at one, and it has been ahhhmazing--and community outreach.

A few more tidbits about me: I love to write, and it's real exciting for me to be able to contribute my voice to the Simmons community. I have a coffee obsession, cats are my favorite, pearl earrings are my jewelry of choice, living compassionately is the coolest, and in my little windows of free time you can find me meandering through the stacks at the Boston Public Library and checking out new restaurants, and cafés with friends.
