Khushi started the voiceover by sharing, “I don’t think I’m the person I want to be yet but I definitely think I’m growing. It’s so rewarding to see people show so much appreciation towards me when I have not even done anything to deserve it yet. I have the power to make someone else happy, it just makes this all the more worth it.”

She has been under the spotlight from a very young age and in the video has addressed the way she developed ‘self-esteem issues and insecurities’ because of the criticism from people. She goes on to say, “ I’m kind of shy and awkward. Obviously, sometimes, the hate gets to you, especially being so young. I just want people to know I am a real person. I didn’t really know how to handle it, so my self-esteem issues and insecurities stem from that. As a child, it affected the way I saw my parents. I didn’t look like my mom and I didn’t look like my sister, so sometimes, people would point that out and make fun of me. I wasn’t the healthiest about it at some point and it affected the way I would eat and the way I would dress.”

She concluded the voiceover with the revelation that she has learnt to love herself and has been trying to overcome the self-doubt with every passing day. She said, “You just have to learn to be okay with yourself and in your own skin. I think that the way to deal with it is to... put yourself out there and do whatever you feel like doing. I feel like people will appreciate you for it.”.
