It’s Only Half Time
There is something about being a sportsperson, a team player, a persistent risk taker, and a lover of the game that rewires your life forever. It certainly happened to me, and I’ve never looked back since. Somewhere between the two ends of a goal post lay my life goals – out on the field, inside the locker room, under blinding lights, and between team huddles. For me, the adrenaline from a 90-minute game could keep running through my veins for days as my heart beats in sync with each thump of my feet on the football field.
My strides on the field eventually translated to larger strides in my journey. With football defining a large portion of my youth, I worked my way to the I-league, eventually getting into the ISL (Indian Super League). However, as I began understanding the nuances of the real world, I chose instead to pursue a Masters degree in another passion of mine – finance – which seemed like a balanced decision.
Armed with determination, I embarked on an endeavour to further both my interests at the University of Surrey in the UK, the land of football. Having made it to the University’s football and futsal teams additionally proved that I am amongst the lucky few.
Thank you AddedSport for giving me this opportunity!
