Social awareness nonprofit Lyrical Opposition has elected Shannon Price to its board of directors. Shannon will serve as vice-chair, as well as sit on the fundraising committee and assist the organization’s Lyrical Assembly initiative with project and operations management.
Shannon is familiar with Lyrical Opposition’s ethos, having been Operations Manager from 2015 to 2017. She has been a tutor and a teacher, as well as working in events and office management. She currently serves as a project manager for Visual Prophets, a design and destiny agency that aims to guide journeys of self-discovery for people and businesses.
Shannon is passionate about human development and creativity and is a highly efficient administrator and organizer. She believes the challenges Lyrical Opposition has overcome in the past year show the opportunity there is for future growth.
“We used to have a lot of in-person things; events, workshops, things like that. When the pandemic hit, it was like, ‘oh, how are we going to pivot?’, but then we saw the silver lining was the opportunity to capitalize on virtual events,” she says. “So we are now able to connect with people everywhere, not just the Bay Area. We were also able to get a lot of relief grants for the first time. So while we've been in survival mode, we've also been able to thrive, which has been a pretty cool blessing.”
Shannon describes herself as a half introvert and half extrovert, who is a big advocate for mental health, self, and social awareness, and curating community. Her favorite food is her Mom’s home-made Singaporean/Malaysian chicken rice. Interestingly, she grew up supporting San Francisco sports teams, the Giants and the Warriors but has lost interest in them after they won their respective MLB and NBA championships and experienced an influx of new fans.
