Sehajpreet Singh had volunteered for a number of initiatives as the world underwent a Covid-19 pandemic. The 17-year old senior high school student from Bayside, Queens, was one of give young people picked up by the New York Times.

“As a Sikh in New York, you are aware of racist behavior but nothing like what happens in other parts of the country,” Sehajpreet told the newspaper. “Hearing stories from someone from the same culture and religion and how poorly they’ve been treated made me feel really sad. I haven’t experienced that here.”
