Guncha Singh: Celebrating Asian American Heritage

by Guncha Singh

FINANCIAL ANALYST SUPERVISOR, BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT

At NVA, we believe that engaging and amplifying different voices encourages us all to learn and thrive. In honor of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) Heritage Month, we asked teammates from around our community to share their personal journeys. Financial Analyst Supervisor Guncha Singh joined NVA in 2017.

What’s your favorite part about working at NVA?  

I love the culture and transparency at NVA. I understand every department works differently but I love how everyone comes together in times of need. I also appreciate how NVA takes care of its employees and genuinely cares!

What’s your family history/origin, and how is being Asian or Pacific Islander part of your identity?  

I was born in India and came to USA when I was 15 years old. Even though the U.S. is more of a home to me now, I will never forget the roots that I came from. Two important things that incorporate the Asian identity in me are Indian dance (esp. Bhangra) and languages (Punjabi and Hindi).

What does AAPI Heritage Month mean to you?  

For me, the core meaning of this month is to educate ourselves about different AAPI cultures and traditions. Given the vastness of heritages/cultures that are included under AAPI, this month-long event gives us an opportunity to explore the different cultures at our own pace.

Why is it important for the larger NVA community to celebrate this month or learn about the AAPI experience?  

Based on the hate crimes we are noticing towards different races, now more than ever, it’s important for communities like NVA to come together and create an environment where we accept one another and embrace each other’s differences.
