Sukhmeet Sachal

Year: 2013
Presented By: Stephen Dooley, Executive Director, SFU Surrey

Sukhmeet Singh Sachal has accomplished more in his 21 years on this Earth than many will achieve after 60 years. Just to mention a few things, he has created a non-profit organization to benefit the lives of impoverished people both locally and abroad; he has created Students Without Borders to bring together students of different backgrounds for a common cause; he is the recipient of the Big Dreamer’s and Giving Hearts Awards; and Sachal is involved in various other causes that are close to his heart.

Along with all his philanthropic causes, Sachal has excelled as a student and as a leader. It is no surprise then, that Sachal was the recipient of DARPAN Magazine’s Extraordinary Achievement Award for Young Wonder. Sachal was very happy to have made the trip from Montreal to Vancouver to receive the award. “It was a truly an unforgettable night with so much inspiration,” says Sachal.

“I felt honoured and humbled to be selected as the recipient.” His smile was shining bright that night on the red carpet of the awards ceremony. And why not? Along with being happy to be part of such a wonderful event, Sachal believes that one smile can change the world.
