Shaina Ghuraya( She/Her/Hers )
Alt text: Shaina, with long black hair, dangly gold earrings and round black framed glasses, is a South Asian woman, whose wheelchair headrest shows behind her head. She's wearing a vibrant shirt with swervy colors and black spots.
Shaina jokes that she’s a triple threat - she's female, South Asian, and a wheelchair-user. She's written on two Netflix animated series and is a 2021 fellow of the Sundance Institute’s Accessible Futures Initiative. She loves creating bold stories about scheming women disrupting the status quo (like herself), and is an activist who supports the teachings of Disability Justice. Her films surrounding topics of disability have screened at Slamdance, Superfest, and Hollyshorts. Originally from Elk Grove in Northern California, Shaina attended USC and majored in Film and TV Production where, after graduating, she was featured in Forbes. Learn more here: www.shainaghuraya.com
