Shoshannah was born and raised on the southside of Chicago,IL. This rising star began her acting career in 1999 with the Chicago State University Theatre Program and ETA Creative Arts Foundation. Her talents have allowed her to perform both locally and abroad for these companies. Aside from being an actress, she is also a spoken word poet and playwright. Her works focus on social commentary that highlight the modern-day "Black Experience". She has been fortunate enough to have her works, "Woman Enough!!" and "Jukin & Jiggs", produced locally and Off-Broadway. She has been featured in several stage productions including her own one-woman show "That Hootchie" which debuted in 2005. With the continued support of her co-producer, Antaeus M. Gayles, Shoshannah continues to work hard to bring her work to as many new audience members as possible.
