Ms Heershan Kaur
Ms Heershan Kaur graduated from the University of Nottingham (UK) with a Bachelor of Laws (LL.B) (Honours) in 2017. She currently works as a legal associate in an insurance litigation law firm. Heershan is extremely passionate about advocacy and human rights and hopes to equip youth with the tools to voice their rights through education. During her free time, she volunteers her time with the Law Society of Singapore where she does pro bono work. At University, Heershan served as the President of the Sikh Society where she organised Langgar on Campus, Guru Nanak’s Mission and weekly Simran circles. As a youth member of the Inter-Religious Organization, Heershan strongly believes in inter-faith work and community service. Through YSA, she hopes to value add with her dynamic personality and infectious love for Sikhism by organising unique community building activities so as to strengthen intra-community ties for Sikh youths. Through community engagement efforts, Heershan hopes to inspire other youths to spread joy through altruism and effect change through activism. When Heershan is not busy at work or service, she is a food connoisseur, an avid traveller and someone who appreciates the little luxuries of life. For Heershan, the most important things in life are to be savoured and shared. Thus, when she found a group of like-minded friends at YSA’s Young Leadership Programme, she helmed an initiative called “Untitled with the Sitare” as a safe platform for youth to create and share their own poetry and music. Heershan believes that through such efforts, she can not only create a strong network of youth with a shared love for the literary arts but also allow youth to truly express themselves without judgment in order to break stereotypes.
