Priyal Thakkar

Priyal, 21, is a graduate in political science from Gujarat University, a spoken word poet and currently researching prisoners' rights–working with the Centre for Social Justice before beginning her legal education as a human rights lawyer. Committed to harnessing the power of Gen Z for social and political change, she has produced a weekly radio show of youth activism and is the founding member of Povera, a spoken word organization that used poetry as a tool for education and empowerment. When she isn't working to change the world, you can find her reading (and sniffing) books in her free time!
