Shivpriya “Priya” Sridhar has never been to prison. And since 8th grade, she has been working to make sure other teens don’t end up there either.

Priya, who just graduated from William G. Enloe Magnet High School, was born in Malaysia and lived in India until she was three. She spent most of her childhood in Kansas. At 14, she moved with her family to North Carolina and completed 8th grade at Carnage Magnet Middle School. This was also the year that Priya stumbled into a volunteer opportunity that ignited a passion that would drive the next four years of her life.
