A lifelong love of the written word propelled Shreya to the University of Missouri, where she received her BJ in Magazine Journalism and BA in Psychology. While in college, she interned for a variety of publications, including People and the Daily Herald (a suburban Chicago newspaper).
Having the opportunity to write about a range of topics ultimately fueled another passion: furthering educational equity in our country. After spending many years as an educator, Shreya pursued a Master’s in School Leadership at Harvard Graduate School of Education. She is currently an Assistant Principal at a K-8 school.
Her college essay was about bridging the divide between the American culture she grew up with and her Indian heritage.
