Shonita moved to the US in June 2017 and is a graduate of the Stella Adler School of Acting, New York. Prior to moving to the US, she worked for three years in Mumbai in the Indian film industry (lovingly called Bollywood). Shonita has her master’s in Journalism and worked for two years at Google India before realizing that her love for theatre is more than just a hobby — it’s a necessity. Her credits in the US include Aimee in The Humans, Sally in A Lie of the Mind and The Traveler in The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane. She is incredibly thankful to her family for their constant support and especially her sister - Tanisha Joshi.
