A typical day in my life includes…

being late to drop off my 2 and 4-year old at school; meeting with a local school district, corporation or government office to discuss how we can be more inclusive and respect each other’s differences; volunteering with 5th graders at a low-income elementary school.

in H-town (Houston).

Tupac.

ice cream, especially rocky road!

When I was younger, I wanted to be…

a late-night talk show host just like David Letterman.

I’m inspired by…

my husband and other Sikh men and women who wear turbans because they endure so much prejudice and still stand up for what they believe in.

The one person who motivates me is…

my dad. He immigrated to this country over 40 years ago with no money and worked hard to become a successful engineer. He has been through so much and still is one of the most positive people I know.
