Through her spoken word act she aims to be thought provoking in an effort to evoke change. She pursues her passion in a unique way to continue to serve her community all over the globe.

In July, 2012 , she spoke at the annual YMCA Youth Parliament of Western Australia, where young people come together to share their views on community issues and develop a piece of youth legislation. The youth were given the opportunity to speak on any issue. Sukhjit Kaur gave a testimony on courage, drawing on her personal experiences with accepting the hair on her body and her story of overcoming bullying.

Sukhjit Kaur says, "I'm overwhelmed with the love and support from each event, organisation and individual. Not only has everyone welcomed me with an incredible amount of love but the gestures people have made gives me belief in my art and belief in myself.
