Guruprakash Kaur, Class of 1997

After I graduated I went to the University of New Mexico and right now I am working as the Fund Development Director for Sikh Dharma International. My husband, Guru Darbar Singh, is an alumni with a Bachelors in Business from College of Santa Fe, and is a Software Support Specialist for Akal Security. He is involved in regular langar seva for the Espanola sangat and is a board member of Sikh Dharma International. My brother, Sarub Sarung Singh, is an alumni too, and has a Master of Public Policy (MPP) from the UCLA Luskin School of Public Policy. He is currently the Director of Research for Maynard Consulting Services.

Attending our schools in India changed my life in the best possible sense. I owe much of my life’s success to the formative years spent in India. In addition to having a blast and creating meaningful, life long relationships, MPA also helped to open doors for my career. After finishing college, I worked at MPA in administration and eventually became the General Manager for the school. Later, I continued to find rewarding opportunites within our Legacy Non Profits and am now working at the Director of Fund Development for Sikh Dharma International. MPA gives kids a full body, mind and spirit experience that I truly don’t believe they can get anywhere else. I thank God (and my parents) daily for sending me and believe I would be a very different and ultimately less secure and successful person, had I not attended.
