Six-Year-Old Indian-American Girl Becomes The Youngest Speaker At World Expo

Six-year-old Indian-American girl Kiara Kaur has become the youngest keynote speaker to address any World Expo, prompting the World Book of Records, London, to acknowledge this as a world record.

 

FREMONT, CA: Kiara Kaur, a six-year-old Indian-American girl, has recently become the youngest keynote speaker to address any World Expo. "Small Changes, Big Difference" was the theme of the grade I Indian American student's speech at the recent World Expo 22 in Dubai. Her address during the International Women's Week celebrations at the Mexico Pavilion focused on women's empowerment.

As Kiara spoke to NDTV, she expressed her excitement to address an audience on this significant occasion. She also revealed that her grandmother Commander Dr. Rita Bhatra, who had served in the Border Security Force for 40 years, helped her prepare the speech, and she practiced it by speaking to her. Her talk focused on how women empowerment rests in equal opportunity for young girls in education, rights, health, decision-making, earnings, and professional prospects.

The young girl had already made a record as the youngest TEDx speaker. Her speech was, titled "Unboxing Curiosity," which detailed her reading experience. She established a record reading 36 books in an hour and 45 minutes two years ago, when she was four years old and in nursery school. This was certified as a record by the Asia Book of Records and London's World Book of Records.

Kiara’s parents, who are doctors, open up that they do not force her to set records. Her mother expressed her joy and pride in Kiara’s accomplishments and also calla her Dr. Little Mahendra. Kiara also mentioned how she aspires to become the President so that she can help the underprivileged.
