I have moved to Winston Salem in 2011 and ever since have been associated with IUCA. My association with IUCA is seven years old and I have enjoyed every opportunity of being a part of IUCA community, which connects me to my roots. I have volunteered at different levels but this year I am very excited to lead the IUCA committee. IUCA is an excellent showcase of Indian cultural vibrancy. I am very proud to continue my association and lead executive committee in 2019. I am looking forward to working with a great team to bring out the best Indian vibe and aura for us all to enjoy.
