Sirat grew up in Punjab, India in a rural village. Her dad wanted his kids to have a proper education because he didn’t have access to it, coming from an agricultural background. So, he put her and her brother in the best school in the city. Fast forward to 2021, she earned her Bachelors of Science in Economics (Honors) with a 3.98 GPA. Her undergraduate degree and her internship as a content writer and editor gave her a passion to study governmental bills, religious segregation, caste-based violence, and gender based violence.
She went on to get her Masters in Communication with a strategic communication and social justice focus. She studied the diasporic experience of Sikhs in the United States. In the past, she has served as an undergraduate level public speaking instructor, research assistant (social justice), communications and outreach fellow, and a project supervisor. At South Asian Network, she is the community organizer and takes care of civic engagement, base building, labor organizing and workers rights, coalitions, hate crime training, policy, and legislative connections.
