"I view being a Kaur as embodying strength, compassion, and a sense of nurturing. I was born and raised in a small town and went to various Sikhi camps. I was fascinated with Sikhi and gravitated towards it, I still am. As the youngest of four daughters, I am the only daughter in my family with Kaur legally included in my name. I am proud of this and believe it was Guruji’s decision for me to be so connected and curious with my faith. Early on, I realized life has so many opportunities, the world is full of them and it was my destiny to take charge of them. Hone those skills and then use them for a greater good. To remove the fear and not waste talent. My talent, early on was public speaking, I realized I didn’t have issues of being scared in front of a crowd. I took that skill and entered pageants and wasn’t focused on winning or wearing a crown or sparkly dresses. My focus was to be a voice, to represent, and to make a difference. I ended up winning a pageant in my local town with flying colours and took that platform to work on projects to tackle social issues like prevention and awareness of bullying. I think my win and subsequent work was because I had good intentions, I took learnings from my faith of doing things for a greater good and leading my life to make a difference. My passion for social cause work through the pageant led to volunteering on a global level. I made many connections and helped to teach and was able to showcase what being a Kaur means, especially in areas stricken with hardships, where strength, compassion and nurturing was most needed. Places like Thailand, Ecuador, and India where I helped teach english, rebuilding orphanages and also build houses. During those seva trips I would wear shirts referencing Sikhi and people would ask me about them. It gave me an opportunity to have conversations and share who I was and what my faith represented to me. During my volunteer efforts it became apparent about the gaps in the medial outreach of patients and even preventative medicine in these countries. The art of human interaction led me to see different walks of life, especially the medical experiences of women. I believe that if you can dream it you can live it. My belief in attaining my goals led me to realize that you can pursue anything. I'm in my last year of medical school. Next on my list of things to pursue will parallelwith medicine and supporting our youth pursue things they can't accomplish because in my opinion today’s generation is tomorrow future."
