Shriya Bhattacharya is an Indian-American writer and journalist based in Washington D.C. She is Youth Editor for Brown Girl Magazine and has also been published in Ms. Magazine, Teen Vogue, and more.

She is a firm believer in the power of human connections: through her journalism she seeks to amplify the voices of minority groups and individuals who want their story told. Shriya's reporting interests include youth activism, global health, South Asian culture, and more.

Originally from Pennsylvania, Shriya has lived and worked in the United States, India, and Belgium. She graduated from Agnes Scott College in 2018 with a B.A. in International Relations and Dance. She now works in global reproductive and sexual health at the United Nations Foundation, advocating for women and girls around the world.

In her free time, Shriya loves to teach dance classes, explore the outdoors, and travel to different parts of the world, always on the lookout for stories that should be told. The latter is on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
