Janvi Shukla, a junior communication studies major, was named quarter-finalist at the American Forensics Association (AFA) national tournament held April 1-3 at Bradley University. With 73 universities and hundreds of students represented at the competition, Shukla advanced to the top 24 with her program of oral interpretation.

Her presentation weaved multiple forms of literature into a discussion of the misunderstandings seen by Indian-Americans and their struggle to hold onto their heritage while attempting to join the “American melting pot.”
