Her most commendable achievement however, has been the Global Citizen award, the only Indian to have achieved this recognition.

A candid tete-a-tete with Priya brought to fore her life's journey from an obese and unhealthy child to a confident and healthy young achiever who also is a state level weight lifter and a ted ex speaker.

Talking about her startup, Priya said:

The HealthSetGo Organization was established with a vision to build a healthy planet by inculcating healthy habits in children. When speaking about public health interventions, I believe that we need to focus on the generation of the future : our children . We are bringing a focus on ‘health care’ rather than ‘sickcare’. Today we are providing quality healthcare to both private as well as government schools across India. Only a healthy child can only lead a healthy nation.
