A Sikh student from Newmarket is being celebrated for speaking out and sparking change. When 13-year-old Karanveer Singh Anand was creating his avatar for virtual school, he noticed that the head covering he wears wasn’t an option. So he and his teacher tried to find a solution, reports CBC.
It was great to see his teacher equally invested in making sure that Karanveer did not have to ditch his identity.
“I was really happy that I could finally be who I am,” Karanveer tells CBC. Kudos to the student, teacher and the company Pixton.
