Meet May’s Featured Member: Kulwant Singh!
What is your day job?
I work as a Rural 1st Post Closing Specialist at Farm Credit Mid America. I assist our customers in making their dream home come true!
What is the best part of your job?
Working with my team, we have a lot of fun. My organization, which cares deeply about their employees and invest in their personal and professional development.
How are you managing social distancing?
By staying home and spending much quality time with my family!
How are you staying in touch with family and friends during this time? Any advice?
I make sure I text or call everyone I know just to check on them and ask if they need any help. I have family in India, some in Australia and Canada so communicating with them via WhatsApp to make sure they are doing good. I was taught by my parents/teachers that in good times you can easily find friends, a real friend is who stand beside you during bad times. ( Of course, you have to make sure you stand 6ft apart during this time :P)
Why did you join YPAL?
I was new in the city and wanted to get involved with young professionals and friends. YPAL has given me the opportunity to build friendships and involve in the community.
Why did you choose Louisville?
I usually say I didn’t choose Louisville, Louisville chose me :). I met my wife in Lexington during my work visa and she ended up moving to Louisville since she is from here. I would say looking back I didn’t want to move but now I am a proud Louisvillian and happy that we made that move.

What is the best career advice you have received?
Don’t work for money. It’s very important that you love your job. If you love your job the money will follow because you will be happy, give your 100% and go above and beyond to get the job done!
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I thank America every day for introducing me to it!
Coolest place you have ever traveled?
I love to travel but couldn’t come up with one particular place. I think every city, state and country has something cool to experience.
What are your passions?
Motivating, dancing anytime and anywhere, theatre.
When and how did you move to USA?
I moved to the USA in May 2009 for a training cultural exchange program at Jamestown Resort and Marina, Jamestown, KY. I was 21 years old with an American dream and $200!
