Before this event I couldn’t remember when was the last time I explored the exquisite beauty of the outdoors. Throughout the couple of hours we spent in the outdoors we did icebreakers, games and group activities. During the time, we were paired to play games and do group activities with people we didn’t know and by the end of the activities we all knew each other well. I love meeting new people, I love making new friends and I think you can never have too many friends. During this time, I created more friendships and it was a blessing to meet these incredible individual people that were apart of Misl Sacramento. I enjoyed meeting some of the kindest, funniest and coolest people. While we were at Peak Adventures, we were challenged to go through rope courses and rock climbing, some of us were great at doing it, while others with the support of their friends broke through the fears and faced their fear of heights. This team building event was a perfect balance of visual and hands on problem solving and creating a better relationship within Misl Sacramento. I loved this event because we as a Misl Sacramento become more of a family and it was great meeting new people and essentially creating more friendships.

Sikholars has the distinct honor of being the driving force in social impact & people empowerment. It presents at a pace as hundreds of sangat come together from all over the bay area, U.S & India. Guru Nanak Ji would be so proud. This year's Sikholars was jammed with the latest updates with hot topics range from Arts/ Media and Information Techology, Social Life of Sikhs to Guru Granth Sahib. This highly respected conference has been a beautiful gathering with a myriad of both experienced & novice presenters. This is where many issues & subjects are addressed as well as encourages sangat to bring in their own tastes & opinions on various discussions. At the conference, it doesn't mean you can't come here just to hang out with your fellow sangat. It is the kind of place where you will want to sit & listen for hours. This has been a real treat for me to attend the Sikholars conference. What a great place to start off the day. Even if you have no intention of coming, it's worth a peek to see what you may be learning. Winnie is a working professional in San Francisco and an active member of Misl Bay Area.read more
