As an author, Shanterra published Love Your Jiggle: The Girls’ Guide to Being Marvelous, an inspirational book for girls aged 11-17 years. Themes covered include self-worth, maintaining friendships, decision-making, conflict management, self- empowerment and diversity and inclusion.
In September 2022, Shanterra and co-author Rosalind Wisemen published Courageous Discomfort: How to Have Important, Brave, Life-Changing Conversations about Race and Racism (Chronicle Books), an empowering handbook on how to have candid conversations around race and become a better advocate.
Courageous Discomfort is written by a Black woman and a white woman who ask and answer 20 common, uncomfortable-but-critical questions about racism. Many people struggle to have honest conversations about race, even those who consider themselves allies or identify as anti-racist.
For anyone who wants to have better, more productive discussions, COURAGEOUS DISCOMFORT is an empowering handbook that teaches you how to do just that.
Shanterra believes three things have always kept her grounded: her faith, her community of family and friends, and her relationships with her mentees. These constants remind her of her purpose in life, which is to Mend, Motivate and Empower people, young and young at heart, to believe they are, without reservation, completely MARVELOUS!
