From a ‘C’ student, being told she could never be a Journalist to being a Radio Presenter, Health Journalist, Media Practitioner, Speaker, Business Owner.
Gurds Hundal uses her cheeky sense of humour and bubbly personality to engage and inspire the audience that ‘anything is possible’ when you have a positive mindset.
Her humble personality, allows young people to easily relate to her and the way she delivers her message empowers the young people to follow their dreams and ‘never give up.’
Having achieved a ‘C’ for English at GCSE, she still dreamt of being a Journalist, and quickly realised that it was her bad habits holding her back in education. She learnt the importance of perfecting her English through consistent practice and self-belief. Gurds then studied a Bachelor’s degree in Journalism, where she worked day and night to better her English, from reading newspapers, to writing articles to the highest standards.
Gurds managed to get into the doors of BBC Radio Leicester at the age of 19, without an application form and realised that everything was within her reach. She quickly learnt the skills of journalism and understood that it’s not what you know, it’s not who you know, it’s about who knows you.
She then went on to ITV National News, Women’s Health, and CTV National News in Canada. Anything that Gurds put her mind to, she excelled at it. She has worked for several print and broadcast companies, stood outside 10 Downing Street, hosted The UK Natural Health Show, produced a documentary on male eating disorders, and produced a TV script.
Gurds holds a Masters in Broadcast Journalism and now host the Get Inspired With Gurds Show on UK Health Radio. She also works alongside NCS with The Challenge, inspiring young people to unlock their fears and follow their dreams.
Her speeches and workshops are highly interactive and motivational. She teaches the young people that it does matter who you are, or where you are from, you can achieve anything in life, the first step is to try.
