Yes, Dimple is my REAL name

Dimple Khurana.

My entire life, people have asked me if Dimple is my ‘real’ name. The question has followed me around everywhere. Except in India, where the name is from. I love being Indian — my heart & soul lives there, and it’s my happiest place. Despite that, I once changed my name to Alex because I was so tired of the questions and jokes and mockery .. (kids, and sometimes adults, can be MEAN!). But it just didn’t fit. So I changed it back. Now, I’ve adopted the perspective that if people think it’s weird, they will eventually adjust and always remember me because of my unique name.
