First observant #Sikh graduates from the US Military Academy at #WestPoint

Second Lieutenant Anmol Narang, a second-generation immigrant born and raised in Roswell, Georgia, is the academy’s first observant Sikh, meaning she follows religious practices including Kesh, which calls for allowing one’s hair to grow naturally without cutting it.

“It’s an incredible feeling,” Narang told CNN. “It’s a humbling experience, I have never worked harder for anything in my life. Being a Sikh woman is a very important part of my identity and if my experience can play a small role in being an inspiration for others, regardless of career field, that will be wonderful.”
