Tala Shatara is #MadeForKnoxville.
Writer, community advocate, and self-starter, Tala Shatara wears many hats and walks a nonlinear path. In her young adulthood, she found purpose in the pivot and wrote a book about it.
It can take a lifetime to fully embrace the pivots that arise in the human journey. At the age of 25, Tala wrote her first book on how she worked through her own pivots, trauma, and life changes. In Finding Plan B: A Step-by-Step Guide to Picking Up the Pieces when Life Falls Apart, she shares how trusting in God’s plan for her life helped her through difficult times. In light of the unpredictability experienced during the pandemic, Tala hopes her book can serve as a guide to help others dealing with hard changes. Listen to this 2021 interview to hear Tala share about her book!
Aside from her writing endeavors, Tala founded Trend Fest in 2018 and currently works as a local TV show host for WATE Living East Tennessee. She fills her free time with volunteering and advocating for people in her community.
“Plan B was created by the man who created your Plan B before your Plan A.”
