Souparnika P Nambiar has no previous experience of doing floral decorations, but the 13-year-old from Kasargod acquired the skill by taking tips from the internet and social media. Today, the class-7 student of Kendriya Vidyalaya-2, Kasargod, is participating in the floristry competition at the north zone level of the January 27-31 India Skills Kerala 2020.
“I developed a liking for making parasols, baskets and garlands using flowers. I found it an interesting activity when I chanced upon them on YouTube,” reveals Souparnika. “It led me to replicate such things by plucking flowers from the front yard of my house.” That is when the girl came to know about India Skills Kerala 2020. “Soon I applied for the competitions.” And emerged the topper in the floristry section at the Kasargod district-level round.
