Anjali Patel is an entrepreneur and co-creator of, a virtual pen pal network encouraging intergenerational friendships by uniting youth and older adults via Skype and Facetime. As a mom of three young children, Patel understands how challenging it can be for today’s youth to juggle smart phones and technology with human connection.
