Shana Williams ’06

Shana Williams ’06, was born and raised in Buffalo, NY, and attended City Honors School. At an early age, she discovered her love of literature, and wrote countless short stories, plays, and poems as a child. During her time at Canisius, Shana was a proud member of the McGowan/Urban Learning and Leadership Community and feels blessed to have not only received a full scholarship to pursue her education, but to have been in the presence of some of the best friends and mentors she has ever had the pleasure of meeting. She served as the co-editor of Nia News, a literary publication of the Afro-American society, and also served as the editor-in-chief of the 54th edition of the Quadrangle. In June of 2008, Shana received her M.A. in English from the University at Buffalo, and currently teaches as an adjunct English professor here at Canisius. Shana feels her time at Canisius truly shaped the woman she has become, and she looks forward to a career in teaching and hopes to never stop writing. It’s what keeps her sane.
