B.A. in English, Minor in Creative Writing 

Faculty praise for Shuara

Crystal Mueller: “‘The first draft is just you telling yourself the story.’ This is a quote from Terry Pratchett that Shuara Vohra shared with me. It reflects the reflective, iterative work of writing, a process mirrored in our becoming as human beings. Shuara not only has traced and retraced a path for herself intellectually but also has invited countless others to engage in this work as she encouraged them and walked alongside in the Writing Center. Shuara’s motivational ways of being and knowing model for others how to be better versions of themselves.”   

Abayo Animashaun: “What a delight it was working with Shuara all these years! From her love of animals to her love of the Nintendo Switch, Shuara came into each class with a true sense of wonder and a searching spirit. For her, each class was a calling. I think it’s wonderful that she’ll be attending the creative writing program at UW Milwaukee for poetry! Congratulations Shuara!!!”
