Anar was born in the bustling city of Mumbai, India, but she has spent most of her life in the outskirts of Philadelphia. She had a love for Temple engrained in her at an early age, as several of her family members (including her mother and sister) are Temple alums. As an undergraduate student at Temple, Anar worked as a peer advisor in the Division of University Studies and realized then that higher education was her true calling. Anar has found it quite impossible to leave Temple, earning her Master’s degree here while continuing to serve in a variety of advising roles. It could truly be said that she bleeds cherry and white. She is very happy to have a home at Temple, and she hopes to remain with the Temple family for years to come.
