Shai-Ann has always had goals to continue to grow no matter how great the trials may become. Often times struggle can become intimidating, but she understands that she must use that intimidation to drive a project to the end result. She lives by her philosophy of:

“Life isn’t always A, B, C, D. Sometimes you have to skip to D to understand B, that way you work backwards in order to move forwards.”
