Manar recieved her B.A. from the College of Staten Island in New York in 2015, and is working to complete her M.A. in 2019. She double majored in English Literature and Creative Writing, and decided to include Education in her studies when she realized how tricky it might be to find a job with a degree that basically meant she loved to read. Manar moved to Massachusetts in 2018, and has learned that the people around here are much nicer than in New York; however, that doesn’t keep her from making the trip there to visit her family on the weekends.
