I joined VIBC as a festival volunteer in 2013. The best part of volunteering with VIBC is that you get to meet so many talented artists with different backgrounds. Why VIBC? Bhangra and music; bhangra helps me to stay connected with my ethnic roots and music is such a universal language that anyone from anywhere can enjoy. One of the most amazing moments, while volunteering for VIBC, was the crowd engagement on the festival day at downtown bhangra.
I felt proud to be part of such an engaging organization. On that day, I felt that as a team we have accomplished our task of promoting the story of bhangra in the heart of Vancouver downtown. I will continue to be part of VIBC and I am excited for its 10th anniversary this year.
