Keda's love for art and music and art was evident since she was a toddler. She has been singing, drawing and writing her way for years now and has achieved many awards in those areas. One of her first awards at 7 years old was 2nd place at the California State Fair for her abstract painting “The King and Queen’s Will”.

When she was 11 years old, she placed honorable mention for her original song, “Ocean in Need” from the Bow Seat organization (for Ocean Awareness Contest) and second place from The Center for Gifted – Midwest Torrance Center for Creativity.

Keda’s curiosity in history and social justice has motivated her many works.

When she was 8 years old, Keda sang the National Anthem for Major Richard D. Winters (Band of Brothers) – The Leadership Monument on the 74th D-Day commemoration in Normandy.

Then at 9 years old, she was invited to Wellington Barracks, London to receive a runner up award for her painting “Love, Peace and Poppies” that she did for Never Such Innocence (NSI) organization. Following that, she was invited to the BBC (Radio 1) World News headquarters in London to be interview live to represent NSI.

In 2020, she won another first place for her song “Salute”. Following that, NSI appointer her to be American Youth Ambassador for Never Such Innocence.

Never Such Innocence is an organization that can give children all over the world a big voice on history through their music, art, poetry or multimedia. Keda believes art and music can take you anywhere, and she sure is proof of that!
