Shana Codd-Wozniak

By Megan Shandro, Stoke Youth Network

Shana Codd-Wozniak has lived in Revelstoke since she was five and has called Revelstoke home for the last 11 years. As a typical 16 year old, Shana enjoys music and hanging out with her friends. Shana has an amazing voice and loves to sing and play guitar in her spare time! She hopes to be a musician, music teacher or tattoo artist someday.

Something that is different about Shana is that she stands out among her peers as someone who has taken on a leadership role in her school and in the community. While she may at first seem shy, Shana is a strong leader and someone who takes initiative. In 2013, Shana had the opportunity to go to the We Day event in Vancouver and started getting involved with the Stoke Youth Network. Since then, Shana has worked on various projects including ‘Me 2 We’ fundraisers and the Leave Out Violence youth media projects.

Shana’s passion for helping to make her school and community a better place, motivated her to apply for a CBT Youth Action Grant to host a second Leave Out Violence youth media workshop that took place this past spring. The workshop addressed issues of hate, homophobia, and bullying. Shana created a powerful media piece that addressed labels and stereotypes that was then shared in all four schools along with those of her peers.

Shana is an advocate and friend to those that are different, including the LBGTQ community. You will see Shana as a proud Safe Space supporter, walking in this year’s Canada Day parade. Shana has worked to engage her friends and peers in various projects, including those that would normally shy away from these sorts of extracurricular activities. Shana is a good friend to many, is a positive and caring person, who despite advisory has proven her ability to rise up and make a difference in our community and the world!
