As the valedictorian of the School of Communication in 1991, Shani was an excellent student to whom learning came easy. The highlights of her time at the U are centered around her social life and football. She still exudes that energy, her amazing school spirit which she embodied as a cheerleader. One of her fondest recollections was representing UM at the esoteric game show, College Madhouse. She enjoyed and embraced so many great times at the U but also took full advantage of all that the cities of Coral Gables and Miami had to offer.
