I had such a lovely time speaking at "Sikh Women in Contemporary America" event hosted by the Sikh Coalition. Inni Kaur, Reshma Singh, and I shared stories and experiences of the ways in which our faith has influenced our professional lives. The audience was full of thoughtful and inspiring young women and men, some of whom wrote about their experiences at the event here. You can also check out the photos from the event on the Sikh Coalition's Facebook Page here. (Photo Source: The Sikh Coalition)

On all sides, endless white snow. The snow-draped trees stretch to the horizon as far as I can see outside my car window. I have never driven through New England in February, and now Sharat Raju and I make our way between snow falls to Dartmouth College for Divided We Fall’s New Hampshire premiere.
