Dawanya Shuler

Senior / Wester Chester University / Pennsylvania 

My name is Dawanya Shuler. I am from North Philadelphia. I am the first in my family to graduate from college. I graduated from Community College of Philadelphia in June 2020 with my associates in Behavioral Health Science. I am currently a Senior at West Chester University pursuing my bachelors in social work.

I come from a single parent household. I have two sisters and one brother on my mother's side. I am a middle child. I lost my mother to domestic violence at the age of 18 Losing my mother at such a vulnerable stage in my life drove me to my passion which is helping other women who come from abusive and impoverished backgrounds seek help and find the tools to rebuild their lives in a positive way. Growing up education was not important; the only standard was just to get out of high school. My mother wanted me to go to college, but I did not find my love for education until after losing my mother to domestic violence.

 

Psychology became interesting to me, questions like why women allow abusive things to happen to them or what makes them stay became a journey of research that landed me into college. Social Work has helped me gain the tools to help link women with resources to rebuild their life, as well as giving my future clients tools that let them see they have self-determination. I want all my future clients to know they are the ones who have all the power, and that they can better their life. I take my studies very seriously. I currently have a 4.0 GPA.

 

I want to make sure that I take my chance to expand my knowledge and use it to help my society become a better place. It is very vital to me that I become a voice and servant to those who have no resources or who feel they have no voice. After graduating from West Chester with my bachelor's in social work come May 2022 my goal is to apply for my master's in clinical counseling and open my counselor center where I link women to resources that can help them rebuild their life in a more optimistic way while helping them improve their mental health.
