In a telephone conversation with YEN.com.gh about what inspired Shania, Elijah Muhammad commented:

''I know one of her biggest motivations is her mum, who has a Counselling PhD. Having a mother to look up to with that kind of educational status inspires her. She also has her personality. She's always wanted to reach this milestone,'' he told YEN.com.gh.
''We're in the process of developing her branding and social media presence. That part is new for us. We were focused more on her accomplishments in education ... We know her achievement is more significant in America ... It's a big responsibility for her. She knows it, and we're preparing her for that responsibility,'' he added.
