My name is Khushi and I reside in the beautiful city of Vancouver. I am currently completing a Bachelors of Science in Biology at the University of British Columbia. In the future, I hope to pursue a career in the medical field and join Doctors without Borders, to provide healthcare to those in need.
I have played tennis since the age of 4, competing both provincially and nationally. Now, I coach and umpire tournaments for Tennis Canada, in an effort to stay within the circuit. Writing has always been a passion of mine. I have won numerous essay writing competitions that have provided me with once in a lifetime opportunities, such as being a Canada150 national delegate.
Growing up in British Columbia has provided a love for nature, along with an appreciation for its delicacy and beauty. I am an avid hiker, trekking trails in untouched natural habitats. I also have partaken in many endeavours and competitions to highlight how I do my part to keep my
community green. Some projects that I have undertaken with some friends are to build a sustainable rain garden, where we grew produce with the compost from our school, and conversations with local MLAs on plastic reduction and conservation of local rivers.
Pageantry has been a massive part of my life for a long time. I competed in Miss. BC, winning the title of Miss. Teen Greater Vancouver 2018 and in Miss. World Canada, winning the title
Miss. Greater Vancouver World 2019. I have had the opportunity to raise awareness for my platform and attend events where I had the chance to speak to people from various backgrounds.
Living in a world of immense change in terms of race, gender and sexuality, I have embraced the concept of feminism. I believe, with the help of the media, feminism has become a radicalized concept and the core belief of equality is lost. I advocate for the safety and recognition of women, and educate on the importance of shifting the narrative. As Miss. Teen Canada 2021, I would be honored to use the platform to educate on the true meaning of feminism and how important it is for everyone – not just women.
