Shauna O’Neil, 50

“I don’t need to please others. I just need to do what is right and speak my truth with kindness.”

“I strive to find peace and joy no matter where I am. And when I stop feeling those things, I move on.”

Shauna O’Neil at age 50

Dedicated to her children, faith, and community, Shauna is selflessly devoted to those around her. As a mother of 5, she values the strong relationship with her children, taking great pride in raising them to be good humans. Described as kind, calm, and patient, she actively includes others helping those around her feel at ease. 

Shauna aims to empower and uplift others, believing that people can accomplish incredible things. She is passionate about helping the homeless and women and children in abusive situations. Shauna believes “you are where you want to be” and values God, family, and giving to others. 

In her free time, she enjoys being near the water, gardening, hiking, and cooking. As a self-proclaimed internet sleuth, she can find anyone on the internet with the tiniest bits of info!

Shauna has relocated to Hawaii with her daughter since participating in this project.
“You are where you want to be.”
