How to Survive Being the New Kid

Hi, I'm Shaina

I’m a Clarity Coach, mindset expert and interior design enthusiast living in sunny Los Angeles. I help people get unstuck and create a lifestyle they’re proud of.

It’s back to school season!

And I had the brilliant idea to do a “back to school” series- multiple videos on the obstacles that students and young adults face when the Fall rolls around.

In one of my latest videos, “My First Time,” I mentioned that I had attended four different elementary schools from Kindergarten to the 6th grade, forcing me into “new kid” status more times than one cares for.

So I thought, what better place to start : )

Being the new kid, whether you’re entering a new school, starting a new job, going off to college for the first time or moving cross country- is not easy!

I still remember the FEAR that came over me when I experienced all of the above…which is why I wanted to share my quick tips on how to make a smooth and successful transition!

My guilty pleasure is Bravo!
Real Housewives, Southern Charm, Vanderpump, Million Dollar Listing...I watch it all.
I'm a sucker for anything nostalgic.
I still watch reruns of Dawson's Creek on the regular
I know the lyrics to almost every 90's song.
Nathan says it's my hidden talent
My happy place?
Summer days. I love the beach, being tan, cookouts and country music!
Monica Gellar is my alter ego.
Cleaning and organizing are my therapy
I always have a candle burning at home.
I have a cabinet full of them.
My favorite movie?
Father of the Bride.
If I weren't a life coach...
I'd probably be an interior designer or do something in TV/ film production. Any chance I get to visit sets, I'm all over it!
