During college, she was the president of her local chapter of the National Association of Black Journalists and held leadership roles in various journalism programs held at the college.

Shamarria loves volunteer work—specifically with underrepresented and multicultural organizations. She is an avid reader and loves to dance it out like Meredith Grey. Shamarria is a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority Incorporated, where her commitment to “Service to all Mankind” is best channeled.
