Student Leadership Summit – Guest Speakers: Shane & Hannah Burcaw

February 19, 2021 @ 12:30 pm 1:30 pm

Join us as we listen to guest speakers, Shane Burcaw + Hannah Burcaw (check out their YouTube channel)!

In 2011, a kid named Shane Burcaw from Bethlehem, PA, started a humorous blog to tell his life story of living with a disease that made his muscles waste away as he grew older.

The blog blew up, achieving HALF A MILLION followers (a number that still grows to this day). Shane realized how badly people needed humor in their lives, so he set out with his cousin Sarah to create a company that could help people laugh more and help others living with the same disease.

Since the founding of Laughing At My Nightmare, Shane has gone on to start a viral YouTube channel with his wife , Hannah (Aylward) Burcaw. The channel is called Squirmy and Grubs. Shane’s disability plays a huge role in their relationship, but not in the way that most people expect.
