Kaur loves to write about female friendship and explore themes of human resilience and transformation against all odds. She won the Grand Prize in Women in Media CAMERAderie initiative for her short film Blood and Glory which premiered at Tribeca Film Festival. Kaur is a fellow of the Writers Guild Foundation’s Veterans Writing Project.
