Amrit Kaur leads her life by giving the voiceless a means to be heard. This passion has manifested itself through the artistic platform. She began singing, playing the piano, and acting at an early age. She acted in the plays Tough, Macbeth, Waiting for Lefty, Past Perfect, and Twelfth Night, which addressed issues of bullying, sexual harassment, and suicide. Her talent garnered her among 11 students selected for a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Acting at York University’s prestigious conservatory program.
Amrit believes in giving her community a voice both inside and outside the acting medium. She co-founded her high-school newspaper Ink’d, assisted Alzheimer’s disease patients at Sunrise Senior Living, cancer patients at the Markham Stouffville hospital, and worked as a medical secretary for numerous years.
She is also a board member on Theatre Ontario’s Youth Advisory Committee, providing an artistic platform for the disadvantaged to be heard. This empowerment of the voiceless continues as she writes her play Hummingbird, based on true stories that target the bully through the voice of a sexually harassed chorus of victims. Amrit’s vision for Miss World Canada is to provide a voice for everyone, including the voiceless. It is a voice for you.
