A six-year-old Indian-American girl has set a new world record by becoming the youngest keynote speaker to address a World Expo.
Kiara Kaur addressed a World Expo, prompting the World Book of Records, London, to acknowledge this as a world record.
Standard 1 student gave a speech on “Small Changes, Big Difference” in Dubai.
She delivered the speech to mark the International Women’s Week at the Pavillian.
“It was exciting to speak to an audience at this great event. I prepared my speech by speaking to my grandmother, Commander Dr. Rita Bhatra who had served the Border Security Force for 40 years,” told NDTV.
“Women empowerment lies in equal opportunity for young girls in education, rights, health, decision making, wages, and professional opportunities,” she added.
Interestingly, Kiara had set a record of becoming the youngest TEDx speaker when she spoke about her journey of reading. Her speech was titled, “Unboxing Curiosity”. She addressed the TEDx meet last year on Children’s Day which led to her recognition by the World Book of Records in London.
She also holds the record for reading 36 books in an hour and forty-five minutes. She was born in the US but living in Dubai since both her doctor’s parents are settled there. Kiara is also studying French and Spanish as she inclines to study languages.
