Plaistow’s Kiran is London Ambassador

Kiran Kaur has more reasons than most people to look forward to the Olympics as she will be a London Ambassador.

She has been selected as a London Ambassador and will be representing the city during the Olympic and Paralympic Games, welcoming visitors from all over the world.

Kiran, 20, from Plaistow, will be based in Stratford and her tasks will include providing information about the events and also what the easiest routes around will be.

She told the Recorder: “I applied for the London Ambassador role because I am passionate about where I am from so I asked myself, why not give something back to my community?

This is a huge opportunity for me as I will be gaining so many memorable experiences - it’s not everyday you can say you have been the face of both your borough and your city. There are many negative stereotypes about my borough and I want to be one of many who are working hard to prove that quick judgements should not be made. Newham is diverse and full of opportunities. I would urge others from Newham to grab this opportunity with both hands.”

Kiran applied to become a London Ambassador and was selected to attend an activity day which also included an interview. She was successful and is now attending training days.
