Shelby is an incredibly gifted model, with a sharp wit and a wonderful laugh she has the making of a stand up comedian or a actress on a sit com. She’s your little sister and your best friend to drive around with. I introduce another beautiful Ithacan, Shelby.

So how did you find your way to Ithaca and tell me about a fond memory of your time here when you were a kid?

I was born in Toms River, NJ where I lived until I was about nine years old.  My family and I moved to Ithaca in the summer of 2001 and have been here ever since.   I have a lot of fond memories about the drastic change from Jersey to here.  I remember that I was initially against the move but my mind quickly changed when I saw our new house for the first time.  I live in a house that is currently over 150 years old and when I first walked into the place that would be my bedroom, I knew it was home.

Beautiful Ithaca. Shelby

Tell us about what makes Ithaca such an amazing place to be from?

Ithaca is a great place to call home because it is a place with so much character.  It was great to grow up surrounded by both beautiful natural landscapes as well as gorgeous old architecture.  Ithaca has such a creative atmosphere that nurtures talented musicians and artists.

Tell us a little bit about what keeps you busy?

I am currently a Broadcast Production student at TC3 and a part time employee at Trader K’s, so that takes up a lot of my free time.  When I do get some time for myself, I enjoy painting, photography, music, and movies.

What attracted you to the Beautiful Ithaca project?

I was attracted to the project because I have always had a small interest in modeling and a bigger interest in photography.  When I read about the project I thought it was a great idea and I wanted to do what I could to make a fellow artist’s dream a reality.  I also thought it would be interesting to try my hand at modeling and reveal the beauty of the city I live in.

What message do you hope to convey in your month?

In my month I hope to portray the beauty that is Ithaca, NY.  Summer is my favorite time to be in the tiny city, and I would love to share that appreciation with others.
