SHANTERRA MCBRIDE is an international teacher, speaker, author, and preacher with expertise in youth development, diversity and inclusion and allyship. She resides in Dallas, Texas. In 2014, Shanterra founded MARVELOUS UNIVERSITY, a social enterprise designed to meet the diverse needs of girls and young women as they navigate life. Working with young people from all backgrounds, Marvelous University focuses on life coaching, success planning, mentorship, and leadership development. As part of this efforts, Shanterra trains adults who engage with youth to ensure that there are well-equipped and trusted allies in the lives of the young people. In September 2022, Shanterra and co-author Rosalind Wisemen will publish 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, 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 stays grounded through her faith, community of family and friends, and relationships with her mentees. These are constant reminders of her life’s purpose which is to mend, motivate and empower young people and those young at heart, to believe that they are, without reservation, completely MARVELOUS! Shanterra obtained her bachelor’s degrees from SMU in sociology and public affairs & corporate communications and was awarded the Profiles in Leadership Award for having a significant impact on the city of Dallas and on the quality of life for girls and women all over the country. She earned a master’s degree in organizational leadership from Gonzaga University.
