Kishori Patel is a rising high school senior at St. Paul Academy in Saint Paul, Minnesota. She began her work at Vote Run Lead as an intern in March of 2020. She is an active volunteer in social justice and human rights organizations and political campaigns in her home state of Minnesota. She is the co-president of Students for Social Justice at her school and a former intern at World Without Genocide in Saint Paul. She hopes to pursue a career that combines social justice, international relations, and American politics. She enjoys learning about narratives that are too often left out of history textbooks, world languages, and the influential women who are changing politics in the United States. She is inspired by the women of color running and winning public office in Minnesota and throughout the country, and views Vote Run Lead as a key player in this important trend!
