I am Possible with Khushi
My name is Khushi Kaur and am 13.5 years old. I am the editor of my own website, Youth Ambassador for The Eve Appeal, Junior Bake Off Contestant 2015; and the Co-Founder & Editor of Award Winning Passion for Food. Cooking is one of my biggest passions and I share these on my Instagram page.
I won the Bronze Award at Hertfordshire Digital Awards in September 2016; http://www.khushikkaur.co.uk/winner-hertfordshire-digital-awards/ and I was a guest panellist at The Festival of Marketing; http://www.khushikkaur.co.uk/guest-panelist-marketing-festival/ in October 2016.I have a few media appearances over the past couple of years which can be seen here; http://www.khushikkaur.co.uk/as-seen-in/.
What inspires you?
Quotes really inspire me because they have such powerful messages behind them, even though they are expressed in small words. One of my favorite quotes is “Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it’s called the present.” Music is also quite inspiring as some words have a strong meaning about love, war, life etc.
What are your dreams for the future?
I’ve always dreamt of moving to New York and living in an apartment in the city and have a coffee-to-go in the mornings on my way to my Café / Restaurant / Fashion Studio.
But before that, Mum and I are moving to Paris in 2020 (It has always been her dream to live in Paris) which means I will be going University there; Le Cordon Bleu and International School of Fashion and then moving to New York.
Who is your role model and why?
My mum is my inspiration because she has been through so much in the past, and look where she is now. She always motivates me and encourages me to do extra in everything and teaches me to be the better person. She prepares me for the future and expects highly of me because she knows I can do it.
What do you love most about travelling?
What I love most about travelling is: packing, getting to the airport via taxi in early morning or late night, boarding airplanes and sitting in window seats, dressing up and experiencing the countries culture. I LOVE TRAVELLING! One of my favorite countries to visit is India, as I get to see my family, eat delicious Indian food and much more.
You are a Youth Ambassador for The Eve Appeal – can you tell us a little about this?
Of course! So, I am the Youth Ambassador of the Eve Appeal and my job is to sell these beautiful heart badges for £2 and wearing a uniform to represent my job. Once, I interviewed an author and she generously donated £100 to the charity. It is for a good cause to support Women’s Cancer, especially how my Grandma died of it. I like to think of this as helping my Grandma and other Women suffering from this condition.
Please finish this sentence:
I am possible because…. I am.
What do you think of Isossy Children clothing? The brand aims to empower and inspire children who wear them – is that something you can see in the clothing?
I think Isossy Children clothing is awesome! I love the style, the vibrant colours and I like how some pieces are simple, yet some are very detailed.
What words of wisdom do you think every child should grow up knowing?
I think that children should always follow this: “Always be yourself, and believe you are enough” Changing yourself for someone is very wrong to do, so just be yourself because …. Why not? You are amazing just the way you are!
