My name is Shalena Hansley, I was born October 9 in Greenville, North Carolina. I am a mother of five children: Jylynn, Emmanuel, Yasmaine, Tyshina, & Rihanna. I have 9 granchildren of whom I love dearly and one on the way. I graduted from JH Rose High in Greenville NC in 1995.
I have managed my own housekeeping business and have worked for various companies cleaning houses and commercial buildings. I truly enjoy what I do and seeing the smiles on people face when I finish.
I am an active member at Burning Bush Pentecostal Holiness Church under the leadership of Bishop Fair Lillie Boyd. When I think of Psalm 100 which is my favorite scripture it allows me to know the Lord is my Shephard and because of him I shall not want.
What made you join the SWAT Organization?
I wanted to get my story out and to help others who have been sexually assaulted to be able to come forth.This organization allows me to tell my story and helps with the healing process so that I can help other young women whom have suffered from sexual assaults' and show them that I am here for them.
What is your role in organization
I am appointed as the Assistant Secretary for the organization. I help to conduct and schedule meetings to make sure the organization has what it needs and to help schedule the founder and any speakers. I assist with making sure every person knows the meetings scheduled and making sure the founder and other speakers are not overbooked so we can support each other.
What is your vision for the organization
My vision for the organization is for us to grow and see us travel from state to state and city to city that we can help spread awareness and help more men and women. I know based on my favorite scripture that because of who we all served God has greater for this organization.
