2019 Glammy Finalist Blog Series: Manveet Kaur, President
Manveet Kaur, who served as president of the Mother Seton Regional High School chapter, is today’s Glammy Finalist Blog Series feature! Manveet tells about a special event she organized for her chapter; she also discusses how working with GlamourGals has inspired a compassion in her that she plans to one day use as a neurosurgeon.
What is one instance where you went above and beyond your responsibilities as a leader?
Last year was my first year to serve as the president of GlamourGals at my community. Usually, the girls signed up and attended the makeover events. But that year, I wanted to change the approach. I wanted the girls to have fun and become more involved. I talked over my goals for the chapter with the other chapter leaders and as well as our moderator. I wanted to have a few fun activities before a makeover during special holidays and occasions that would include the senior citizens. Around Christmas time, the chapter leaders organized an afterschool activity where the members would help make ornaments that would be given to each senior citizen as well as writing Christmas cards to them. We also built two beautiful reefs that we gave to the staff at Brighton Gardens. This activity was the highlight of the year because it was the first time the girls had come together to make the holidays special for the senior citizens.
How have your experiences as a GlamourGals volunteer shaped your aspirations and future career goals?
GlamourGals has truly shaped my future aspirations and goals. Bringing joy and happiness in the elderly’s lives truly has an impact on my heart. I hope that I can continue to bring that same love and joy in the future. Therefore, in the future, I hope to become a neurosurgeon and build medical clinics and houses around the world, especially in third world countries such as India and Africa. I want to make medical aid possible for anyone. There are thousands of people who have made the streets their new homes and thousands of orphans who have to fend for themselves. There are millions of families who struggle to feed their families and millions who are unable to take care of themselves because of unknown illnesses and disease. I hope that in the future, I can lend a hand to these people and join on their journey to get rid of the pain and bring everlasting happiness. Mostly, I want to guide them to light when darkness surrounds them.
