In 2014, Sahar graduated from UNM with a BA in English and focus in professional writing. One of her undergraduate professors—Dr. Stephen Benz—helped initiate a professional internship that became a career goal. (Before then, Sahar related strongly with the opening lines of Avenue Q: "What do you do with a BA in English? What is my life going to be?").

Sahar is grateful to use her English degree daily as a medical editor for UNM Department of Orthopaedics & Rehabilitation.

Sahar is currently working toward an MA in Rhetoric and Writing (emphasis in professional writing) and board-level certification in medical editing (called an ELS, or editor in the life sciences). She is eager to expand her knowledge of medical editing principles and, more broadly, the rhetoric of technical communication.
