We had the good fortune of connecting with Khloe Thompson and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Khloe, how has your work-life balance changed over time?
I feel my work life balance has totally changed especially during Covid19. Everything has transitioned to zoom meeting and interviews. Before covid I had a very good balance between my work and my social life.

 

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I’m a kid philanthropist. I started my own charity at the age of 8. I wanted to help support women who were experiencing homelessness. Through my work I’ve been able to expand my mission to helping kids in Ghana. I raise funds to install water pumps and bathroom facilities in schools that don’t have access to clean water. I’m most proud about my work there I feel I’ve had the biggest impact there. I’ve been able to speak and mentor thousands of kids there. I want other kids to know that they can do anything they put their mind to.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Food is a must! Our first stop would be to my favorite coffee and kitchen spot in Inglewood California. It’s call Hilltop Kitchen & Coffee. They have two locations. They have the coolest wall art and the staff is so nice. Next after we grab food we are going to head over to a pop up museum! LA has some of the best interactive museums. After we can go toe Grove to walk around and shop. Our week would be full of hanging out at the beach and touring all over LA

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to shoutout all kids and youth that are still being community leaders during this time. Most of us are stuck at home and we still want to be active in the community. So we have had to find creative ways to still make an impact. So shoutout to all the Giving Tuesday Kids and Giving Tuesday for giving us a platform to express and show our passions as kid leaders
