When talking about something can get you in trouble, find a safer way to bring it up. Grishma learned this mantra while embracing her identities of: cancer patient, amputee, and (angry) woman of color. Through art and academia, Grishma found a safe place for her activism. An opportunity to ruffle some feathers leaves her both anxious and excited, every time.
Grishma is also known as Dr. Grishma Shah. The forever student, it took her 9 years to complete her bachelor's while kicking cancer's butt. To belong in the room where transformation happens, she first needed to be invited, so Grishma spent more years getting a master's degree and a PhD.
