More about me

Herminder’s journey in education began in 2004. Teaching, for her, is not just a profession but a calling – a means to ensure that every individual has access to quality education, regardless of their background. From a young age, growing up in a Sikh household, Herminder adopted the guiding principles of selfless service (nishkam sewa) and adopting wise thinking and reasoning with a humble heart (mann neeva matt uchi), which have guided her work. Herminder was inspired to join Envision as a trustee after experiencing first-hand the impact of the programme on the lives of young people at her academy in Birmingham while serving as Principal. She recognised how Envision’s commitment to deepening young people’s understanding of effective social action not only created a sense of place and belonging for young people on the programme, but also empowered them with new skills as well as an awareness about how they can make a positive difference to their own world and in their own lives.

A social issue I care about

"Promoting Values and Virtues: In addition to academic knowledge, education should also focus on instilling values and virtues such as empathy, compassion, integrity, and respect. These qualities are essential for fostering a harmonious and ethical society where individuals treat each other with dignity and empathy. By investing in values based education, we can contribute to positive social change and leave a lasting legacy for future generations."
