BijalBusiness Communication alum, Bijal Shah, visted Dr. Harris' class and shared insights on her new book titled, "For the Love of Laxmi: Everyday Desi Biases and the Imprints They Leave." Bijal was born in India and raised in the United States. She's always been fascinated by the dichotomy of being raised in two cultures―the little bit of holding on, the little bit of assimilation―and everything in between. The main character of Laxi was born out of this fascination. Always passionate about writing, Bijal loves the character of Laxmi, and she shared insights about writing and her character with Dr. Harris' class. We are very proud of Bijal! Thank you for sharing your work with our students. (From left to right: Lauren Novsak, Dr. Harris, author Bijal Shah).
