Sidaker, Karmine Kaur, sheds light on the impact of Sidak, from empowerment to unlearning preconceived notions with Sidak Facilitator, Jasleen Kaur. 

“I experienced some worries just because I had been to Sikh camps before; there’s worry about I won’t be as well-read as other people and maybe I’m starting at ground zero whereas everyone else is a Sikh scholar. Those feelings of doubt did creep in. It did help to ask questions and just remember that, there’s probably other people that applied for this for the same reasons I did and there probably will be people that are there to learn.”

Sidaker, Karmine Kaur, sheds light on the impact of Sidak, from empowerment to unlearning preconceived notions with Sidak Facilitator, Jasleen Kaur. Together, they chat about the internal feelings of doubt and disconnectedness that may arise at the thought of joining a Sikh leadership program.
