Actress & filmmaker

Model turned actress, filmmaker, activist and mental health advocate
Shreya Patel is altruism personified. A voice for empowering the
underdog, she has, since childhood, dedicated her life to not only a
professional career in film and the arts but also in social work.


She is an honoree of the Top 100 Most Powerful Women of Canada (Arts, Sports, and Entertainment Category), Forbes 30 Under 30 (Media Category), Top 25 Canadian Immigrant Award, Women’s Achiever Award (Youth Leadership Category), and CSPN Emerging Leader Award Under 35. She also gained an honorable mention by the City of Toronto for advancing equity in the city. DissDash named her “Top 50 Coolest South Asians of 2021” along with Priyanka Chopra, Kamala Harris, and Hasan Minaj.

Shreya’s selfless doggedly-determined desire to serve and improve the welfare of others is borne from surviving her own traumatic experiences. She is determined to be a net contributor to society. She divides her time between Canada. USA, and India.

“Award-winning & impact-driven.”
