Krish Patel is a Senior Action Fellow from Braintree, Massachusetts and is a senior at Boston College High School.
His passion for climate justice started when he travelled to India. Krish witnessed, first-hand, the calamity faced by the poor and homeless in India due to constant flooding. This experience motivated him to take action fighting against climate injustice.
Through the Fellowship, Krish is excited to continue learning about climate change and different ways that communities can adapt to a changing climate. In particular, Krish is motivated to understand what communities in India can do to survive and be resilient during severe weather periods.
In school, Krish participates in the environmental club, the Green Eagles, and is also active in many intramurals, including flag football, dodgeball, and wiffle ball.
