Her main career goal is to become a pediatrician. Reading, writing, and music are some of her passions. Although Sukjheet’s parents were very supportive of her, she was faced with many adverse childhood experiences within the educational system. These experiences have helped Sukjheet develop her understanding of the importance of a child’s early years. She believes that each child is a beautiful gift who is capable, unique, and important. The quality programs in early childhood education are not only beneficial for children and families, but are also the foundation to a beautiful and kind society, nation and world.
