Shriya Boppana is an Indian-born American beauty pageant queen, gender and sex crime activist, and on-air personality for Fox 5 Plus/GTV.

Since then, Boppana’s dedication to philanthropy and stage presence have led her to a successful partnership with some of the biggest brands (Bobbi Brown, Amazon, Bumble, Tommy Hilfiger, Mugler, Adobe, Handshake, etc.) and non-profit organizations (Malala Fund, the Obama Foundation, the UN Foundation, The US Department of Justice, G20, She's The First, etc.) of today while managing a full-time working career at one of the world's largest consulting companies.
Her work has been featured on ABC as a ‘Future Leader of America,’ Fox 5 as a ‘Voice for the Voiceless,’ and Flaunt Magazine as a ‘New Generation Beauty Pageant Champion.’ Boppana received a personal letter of appreciation from Virginia Senator, Mark Warner, as a result of her advocacy journey calling her an “exemplary leadership, talent, and community service.” Her opinions on topics like the death penalty and post-covid higher education are regularly published in the Wall Street Journal as a thought leader. In 2023, Shriya became the 2nd youngest person on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list for Austin and was the youngest inductee into the Fairfax County Hall of Fame for her anti-sex trafficking work.
