With support from their network of experts, I have been able to manage my health better and make a strong comeback”

His advice to me was to set higher goals in order to stay motivated, and not let myself be easily satisfied. I have stuck to his words thereafter and focused on the process, rather than the results.”

“While my parents have always been supportive, and encouraged me to play hockey, they were unable to fund all my training and equipment costs. Financial assistance from GoSports Foundation helped ease their burden just as I was picked to be part of the Indian team, as it was a big transition for me since I was just a young girl from a small town. GoSports Foundationguided me and helped me deal better with this opportunity and the challenges that came with it. Not only that, they have been with me since, and have played an active role in helping me build my career and public profile, offering multiple opportunities to share my story with the world, assisting me in my dream to inspire many other young girls to come out and play.”
