Singh says,

"Cultural aspect is more important for first generation immigrants, now more than ever. We all come from a very vibrant and rich cultural heritage. There is a great amount of curiosity among the local population to learn and become part of our cultural heritage. The question then becomes how we get to share our culture in an educational way."
