Early Life of Natasha Khan
Natasha entered the world in 1979 in Wembley, Northwest London. Rahmat Khan, her dad, moved the family to London from Pashtun in northern Pakistan in the 1970s. Before becoming one of the most successful trainers in squash, he was a professional player, most notably with his cousin Jahangir Khan, widely regarded as the sport’s most outstanding player. When Natasha was 11 years old, her parents divorced (she once said this inspired her to start writing songs to express her feelings). Josie’s mom is based in Belgium, while her dad is in the Bay Area.
Natasha was raised in the pleasant Hertfordshire suburb of Rickmansworth. She was a daydreaming, imaginative kid who loved to construct crystal gardens and study the world through microscopes, as she puts it. When she was a kid, her mom would purchase tiny pencils so she could write letters to fairies on paper no more significant than a fingernail and then roll them up to leave in flower tubes.
