Shanti is a recent graduate of X University, where she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in acting and found her love for writing in many forms.

Recent playwriting credits include a workshopped production of Juice at the New Voices Festival. Select acting credits include Rabbit Hole (XU, Nina Lee Aquino), Love and Information (XU, Dustin Wills), and The Duchess of Malfi (XU, James Wallis). Shanti wants to continue to explore many performance forms including Shakespeare, clown, film, and comedy. She is grateful to Block A for presenting an opportunity to spark her imagination and to write, write, write!
