Shambria Loffer, age 24, graduated from Iowa Valley High School in Marengo and now lives in Iowa City. She is currently working at Potentially Yours, an Iowa City thrift store, and also attends the Rural Alternative Employment program in Conroy, Iowa. Creative designs for shoes are her specialty; she has made more than a hundred shoe designs using a template she drew of a Converse athletic shoe. In dealing with ADHD, epilepsy, and intellectual disability, Shambria finds that creating her designs reduces stress and getting ideas from family and friends for themes is a wonderful way that her art makes her feel connected with others. She has been creating the shoe designs since April of 2009. Her dream goal is to have actual shoes manufactured with her designs. Shambria is very cheery and bright and enjoys her daily activities, whether working at the store, creating her art, or being with friends.
