BA Hon (English Language and Literature, Comparative Literature and Culture), Certificate in Theatre Arts, University of Western Ontario
Born in Dubai to an Indian family and raised in Chicago, IL as well as Windsor, ON, Shalu Mehta invests a great deal of her time in learning about different people and cultures in the world. Having just received an Honors BA in English Language and Literature and Comparative Literature and Culture as well as a Certificate in Theatre Arts, Shalu hopes to bring her background knowledge in these subjects to the field of journalism. Shalu’s interest in journalism sparked in high school where she was an editor of her school paper. She pursued this interest in university as she contributed to blogs and her school’s student-run paper. Shalu spent this past summer working at a local not-for-profit organization in a journalistic role, endeavouring to use her work as a means to give persons with disabilities a voice. An avid traveler, Shalu hopes to use images and the written word to educate others and bring people around the world together.
