into performing arts at the age of 14. She has done work in Film, Theatre,
Modeling and recently formed a band with her close friends in which
she plays the electric guitar.
Gibbs "Malik," "The Cash Twins," "Abuela"
first learned the power of her own voice as a teen DJ at Youth
Radio in Berkeley, California. It was there that one of her commentaries
landed on National Public Radio and introduced her to opportunities
behind the microphone. Giving voice to characters "Malik"
and "The Cash Twins" was both great fun and a little challenging
for Shawnee. When even family members didn't recognize the scratchy
voice of Malik as her own, Shawnee knew that she had done her job. The
jury is still out, however, on her interpretation of Sondra's seventy
year old Mexican-American grandmother, "Abuela!"

Gibbs "Principal Arnetta J Johnson" "Cousin
years of being told that she posesses a southern accent, Shawnelle decided
to put her 'twang' to the test by giving voice to Adopted By Aliens'
soul siren, Mrs. Arnetta J. Johnson. Although Arnetta is twenty years
her senior, Shawnelle believes that she captured the throaty essence
of the aggressive middle school principal. Arnetta J Johnson also happens
to be one of Shawnelle's favorite ABA characters. You can hear Shawnelle
singing in the Adopted By Aliens theme song as well as being the syrupy
voice behind Whitney's bubbly Cousin Bee.
