Shante Broadus founded I Am S.H.A.N.T.E. with a passion to give back to adolescent girls living in underserved communities, who are facing many of the struggles she herself had experienced growing up in the high-poverty and historically violent community of Central Long Beach. Since marrying her husband, Calvin “Snoop Dogg” Broadus at the young age of 20, Shante has since proven her strength to overcome adversity and excel as a mother of three, wife of an international entertainment star, and entrepreneur. However, one day Shante realized she had one ambition yet to realize. Shante sought to expand her humanitarian efforts by founding I Am S.H.A.N.T.E., turning her name into an acronym that not only tells her story, but represents an objective women of all ages can relate to: Seeking Her Ambition Necessary to Excel.
In the spirit of our founder, I Am S.H.A.N.T.E. (Seeking Her Ambition Necessary to Excel) encourages women of all ages to tell her story so that it may be honored and celebrated, no matter the amount of heart-ache experienced. I Am S.H.A.N.T.E. fosters a culture of sisterhood and offers support so that each of its participants learn to honor her past, feel strong in the present, and seek her ambition for an abundant future.
