Shauntina describes herself as compassionate. She enjoys learning new things and growing as a person. She says that her son, Treshawn (Tre), changed her world when he was born four years ago. She enjoys the responsibility and challenge of creating and molding this little person and wants to be the best mom she can be.
Growing up in north Minneapolis, Shauntina’s family rented until she was 18 years old and they bought their own home. As an adult, she recognizes the stability that she had in not moving around a lot and wants the same thing for Tre. After renting on her own for 12 years, she came to the point of wanting something for her & her son to call their own. She wanted to provide something for Tre to have when he’s grown.
As a first-time homeowner, Shauntina is excited about her house on the northside of Minneapolis. “I feel at home in north [Minneapolis] and wouldn’t want to own a home anywhere else” she says. After living in her new home for 5 months, Shauntina loves the sense of community in her neighborhood. She likes taking Tre out to ride his bike and meeting her very welcoming neighbors.
