Spotlight on CCG Members -Danielle Shull - March 2023

Mar, 1 2023

We all have a story to tell. Perhaps it’s about our upbringing and what made us the adults we are today. However, as we consider our career choices we still maybe asking questions, the fundamental ‘Why?’ such as….

  • Why are we here?
  • Why are we doing this?
  • Why did this happen?
  • Why does it feel this way?
  • Why have we made these choices?

This month’s ‘Spotlight on CCG Members’ – Atlanta Georgia – USA’S Danielle Shull hopes to answers those questions in her ongoing quest as a student social worker. Let us discover more about this fascinating person.

Originally from the states, Danielle has come to Scotland chasing her family roots and, along the way, found a home of her own.

This home has encouraged her to research the unique and changing landscape of  Scottish (and more broadly, British) social work and its impact on the world.

You may assume social work is all about cases, legislation and decisions. However, Danielle has discovered so much more, such as the creative application of story, psychology, support and a healthy dose of humanity.

This humanitarian influence has empowered Danielle to seriously make a difference in people’s lives. Her literary work can be seen in a variety of means such as –

  • Music
  • Fiction
  • Compassion
  • Bereavement

These are found across a number of international publications and hopes to continue to expand her repertoire of publications and creative questions through her blooming social work career.

Danielle is currently –

  • A student ambassador for the British Association for Social Workers (BASW)
  • A student at the University of Dundee
  • The proud mother of two children who love having a home in two countries

You can follow her stories at her linkedin page below-

Why did she become a CCG member? Because she wanted to make a difference. We welcome her and look forward to following her adventures.
