Shonjrell platform is Born to Kuddle, a platform focused on helping children born dependent on drugs and need human contact after birth. After her own son was born prematurely, she witnessed other infants in the same ward as her son dependent on drugs, crying high pitched cries. She describes the infant's sensitivity to touch and sound, and how many had tremors, a condition called Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome. Her goal with her pageant titles is to bring awareness to this issue.
