Join us as Jasleen Kaur, SikhRI Researcher, leads a Naujavan Sojhi Session for Sikh teens and explores the factors behind internal and external perceptions of the self, in addition to issues of race, bias, and identity. This program is intended for youth aged 14-18. Spots are limited.

This workshop will be followed by a pizza langar around 6PM.

About the Speaker:
Jasleen is a double UVA grad in Religious Studies, focusing on South Asian Religions and the conception of religious identity through the lens of literature and poetry. She is currently working as a Research Assistant with SikhRI, taking part in the design and delivery of Naujavan Sojhi, a course for Sikh teenagers. She is passionate about projects that create comfortable spaces for community members of all ages and backgrounds to engage in dialogue and learn from one another. She hopes to eventually go back to school in pursuit of a PhD in either religious ethnography or history, and fulfill her dream of teaching and learning from others.
