Reema Patel


Reema Patel has a B.A. in Political Science and International Development Studies from McGill University, and a J.D. from the University of Windsor. After working in Mumbai’s social justice sector on two separate occasions: first as an intern in a street child-focused NGO, and again after her first year of law school in a human rights law office, her first novel idea came to her. The second chapter of this novel won the 2013 Penguin Random House Student Award for Fiction at the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies. Reema has since worked with Diaspora Dialogues and the novel will be ready for submission this Fall.
