Describe yourself in three words: A mindful perseverer

Which social media platform do you go to first? 
LinkedIn and Instagram 

When did you first know you wanted to work in sport?
When I geared towards playing my last few Basketball matches at undergrad, I knew I did not want to leave the court, the atmosphere and the adrenaline behind it. So I looked for ways to integrate myself with sports long-term, and that's when the seed was planted for good.


What’s your dream job?
Being in sports is a dream in itself. A bigger dream is to make an impact in whatever role I have, proving myself as a leader without a title.


What’s your greatest fear?

Not growing or evolving as a professional and as a person.


You have the power to make one change to the Olympics, what would it be?
Perhaps include cricket.
What mistakes do sports make when they target people like you?
The question has the answer: Sports has not kept the Asian or in particular the, "South Asian," diaspore at its cornerstone. However, as the industry develops with home-grown talent and infrastructure, I think more genuine coverage and investment of global sports is needed for an audience base that is taking onto sports such as Tennis, Golf, Basketball and Football, amongst others- an audience that is global and aspirational.
