1. Tell us about your background and journey.

I am a national athlete in long jump, my best record is 7.20 meters in Pongal state meet.  I am from middle class family with seven children and I’m the last best not least one in my family.

As I’m the small kid to my family, I got love from parents as well as from my siblings. Though we suffered a lot for running a better life, we had enough enjoyment in home like jumping walls from home to watch night-time movies with elder ones, cycle racing with my elder brother and got many wounds.

We did many naughty things but my mother supported me. When I feel down or in my failure times my friends and mother never missed to give their love and time for me. I am a Taekwondo master from my 6 years old because of my genes talent, I become master.


2. How did you decide to make your passion your career? Was your family supportive?
