"To me being Kaur is being a female which represents power, strength, intelligence and perseverance. As a female in the community my role is constantly evolving to a better self. I am a mother, a wife, a daughter, a student, an instructor, an entrepreneur and more. All of these titles creates who I am and only make me strive to become a greater and stronger individual. Yet this does not mean that I have not faced any hurdles that needed to be overcome. My turning moment was just after I had after my first child, I knew that there were some concerns that needed to be addressed. I had postpartum. Not a topic that is highly discussed, but I knew that in order for me to play the strength role I had to seek help, and I did. Due to my educational background in Early Childhood, I was able to identify I had most of the symptoms of postpartum. I was able to get through my triggers and move forward from feelings of postpartum. My children are my inspiration to move forward, be creative and create a positive change. For my own personal goals I have chosen to further my education and am currently in the midst of completing my Masters in Education at UBC. I am working towards creating educational materials that will assist parents in providing positive encouragement and growth in child development. Over the past five years I have created two Punjabi CD’s based on popular children’s songs. In addition I self-published a children’s book, “I am Beautiful.” This book was inspired from my daughter’s own perception of beauty and my own interests to expand her view of being beautiful and help her understand, “Beautiful is inside you; beautiful is you, every day."
