Rupi Kaur’s Education & Career

As an immigrant child, Rupi Kaur was not very much comfortable with English. During those days, her mother motivated her to draw and paint. Being not so fluent in speaking English, Rupi found writing easy and used to write poems and letters for her friends and high school crushes. It developed in her heart a unique love for written words and she wanted to learn more.

After completing high school, Rupi Kaur went to study Rhetoric and Professional Writing at the University of Waterloo in Ontario. There she decided to take up writing as her career.

During her school and college, Rupi regularly shared her writings online anonymously. Soon she started sharing them on Tumblr under her name. In 2014, she started on Instagram and combined her poetry with some simple illustrations.
