Supriya Vidic Transfers from the U.S. Army to MUM

Supriya Vidic is a literature major who came to MUM after serving six years in the U.S. Army. Born in the Fiji Islands, she moved to the United States at the age of 9 and joined the military at age 19.                                

During her first tour in South Korea, Supriya worked as a radio operator, and within two years she rose in rank to sergeant. Next she was stationed at Ft. Huachuca, AZ where she received advanced telecommunications training, which led to a 15-month deployment as part of the Signal Corps in Iraq.

While in Baghdad, she first worked as a telecommunications officer at the U.S. Embassy, then as project manager for her unit. In her free time, Supriya learned Arabic and volunteered at the intensive care ward of a hospital for Iraqi nationals.

In the Army, Supriya took evening and distance education classes studying psychology. In the summer of 2010, Supriya discovered MUM and learned the Transcendental Meditation® technique.

“I worked in telecommunications, so it’s really easy to get a job and make money,” said Supriya. “But I came to MUM because I wanted to have a good spiritual foundation; once I have that, the rest of my life will be easier.”

Inspired by her experience with the Transcendental Meditation technique, she learned the TM-Sidhi® program in December. In her studies, Supriya is focusing on developing her writing skills and gaining experience by writing a blog about MUM veterans. She also volunteers for a non-profit organization supporting orphans in Africa.

"Supriya has led a fascinating life," said Craig Pearson, Executive Vice-President. "Her successful career in the military, particularly as a woman and as a minority, reflects her great intelligence and sense of purpose. We're fortunate that she learned about MUM and chose to come here for her education."
