"I was always darker skinned and smaller than everyone else and have been judged because of this in my life. I felt undermined growing up and noticed how undermined girls are in general. That led me to discover that leadership qualities don’t mean being the loudest in the room. It’s really about helping others and making a difference, even in the smallest way with another person. I noticed as I volunteered and gave back…I attained a sense of contentment. I noticed a shift in me, I felt more confident and it provided me a sense of accomplishment. Leaders don’t include being loud and obnoxious. The fundamentals are about really helping others, sacrificing and devotion of others. My goal is to bridge the disparity between pioneering warrior Kaurs and the modern Kaur. I want to broadcast those attributes of grace, valour, morality and zest in a society where female oppression still exists. Be well-educated, well-read and open-minded. I may not be holding a bhagauti like my descendants, but my weapon of attack is healthcare. I encourage every young girl to find her own niche and pursue it with utmost devotion. Support one another! Be bold, industrious, altruistic, but most importantly be respectful and humble. A Kaur nurses those in need, but doesn't falter from voicing her ideals, even though she's bound to raise a few eyebrows along the way. It's not a mere name, an article of clothing, memorizing the lyrics of a patriotic song or the khanda hanging from the mirror of your car - it's a mindset of merit that you personalize and embody in order to breathe life into the legacies of noble Sikhs. It's the notion of walking shoulder-to-shoulder with men towards a united and dignified goal."
