Meet Kriya Patel (COL '16), President's Engagement Prize recipient
December 3, 2018
In 2016, Penn senior and Biological Basis of Behavior major Kriya Patel was one of the second annual cohort of President’s Engagement Prize recipients. The University of Pennsylvania President’s Engagement Prizes are awarded to “academically excellent and civically engaged” Penn seniors for the implementation of projects that aim to transform the lives of others during the first year after they graduate from Penn. The recipients thereby exemplify the Penn tradition of “doing well by doing good.” Patel used her prize to launch a healthcare reentry program at Riverside Correctional Facility, a Philadelphia women’s jail. Two years later, CURF Fellow Kathryn Morgan reached out to Kriya to follow up on her fellowship experience and the path it set her on. Kriya responded candidly about the unexpected challenges she faced, the importance of her Penn mentors, and her continued determination to do good in the world through expanding access to healthcare.
