Meet our team

Rina Patel:

For much who has been given, much shall give back. Rina Patel is a South Asian woman working on removing the cultural stigma of her own culture taught her. Growing up in India and later migrating to the United States she experienced limitations being a girl. Now raising a family has allowed Rina to work on empowering her children and community. Rina’s ultimate goal in life is to work on providing equal opportunity for her children and for generations to come. While at the same time helping bring consciousness and healing into her daily practice. Rina embarked on a healing journey while living in the US and that is when she began to face her own fears and challenges, this allows her to give more and align her values with her mission. Rina works with the community on fundraisers to help marginalized women and in parallel works on the largest global forum for young leaders, Rina plans on bringing her collective consciousness and skills to help empower her own daughter and generations to come. Ultimately, through the Women Ambassadors Forum she hopes to support and work on building the next generation of advocates, leaders and healers that this world needs.
