First Female & First Amritdhari Sikh to be an NBA team attendant with the Detroit Pistons- -Japnam Kaur
Japman explains, “I actually emailed the application to my brother at first. He was like ‘Oh my gosh, this is a once in a life opportunity. You have to apply.’ So I applied and when I got hired I was told that I was the first female that they’ve ever hired. So that was pretty exciting.”
She explained that she is grateful to have a diverse and experienced faculty to work with to guide “newbies like us… cuz it’s nerve racking, you have so many cameras around and thousands of people are watching you do your job.”
She also says she’s excited as every day is different, “I feel that every single person on the Pistons is an imporant member of the Pistons. That’s something that I’ve realized: We watch the game and we see the players, we see the coach and the head coach, then there’s this whole other group behind so everyone has to work together to make it all work.”
She now has a job in the spotlight, while working in the back ground.
