Shelby is pursuing one of the College of Education's non-licensure bachelor's degrees, in Learning and Education Studies. She has a passion for helping adults learn and train in professional settings.
"I chose my major because I knew I wanted to go into the HR field, but I was struggling to find a people-focused fit in other colleges. What made me choose Education, and ultimately Illinois, was the deep dive into Human Resource Development that is not typically available to undergrads. This unicorn of a major has propelled my career trajectory in ways that I could not have foreseen when I chose the major in high school."
