HOLLAwho? Meet Baltimore.

Meet Shawna Potter, the Guitar Guru fighting street harassment in Baltimore.

What’s your signature Hollaback? The finger.

What was your first experience with street harassment? I can’t even recall, I was that young. I started playing live music at 14, so I was “in the big city” a lot more than other kids my age. Luckily I was usually around pretty progressive rock n rollers, but that didn’t keep the random jerk from saying something dirty to a minor.

What’s your craft? I fix guitars at Big Crunch Amp & Guitar Repair

Why do you HOLLA? Because I have a voice that deserves to be heard, too.

Define your style: Open-book, lots of black and silver, impatiently waiting for the world to change.

In the year 2020, street harassment … will be used to getting harassed back.

Say you’re Queen for the day,  what would you do to end street harassment? I’d wear an invisible cloak. Only then would I KNOW I could wear whatever I want and go wherever I want without someone else’s creepy thoughts interrupting my day.

What inspires you? My single mother. And the original HollaBackers out there for creating something I didn’t even know I needed.

Anything else? I like tolerance, volcanoes and my cat.  I dislike ignorance, pop music and football.
