Golfer Girl!

 

Golf is a game of coordination, rhythm & grace; women have these to a hight degree.” – Babe Didrikson Zaharias

19 year-old Shriya Agarwal who recently graduated form UWC talks about her journey with golf…
?️‍♀️ I started golf when I was just 9 years old and since then I haven’t been able to stop. It’s not easy to play a sport continuously, since you often combat setbacks and failures but it is the love for the sport that keeps you going.
⛳️ Recently due to an unfortunate leg injury, I had to take a break from actively competing at golf. So I took this as an opportunity to teach young kids and help them understand the fun as well as the life lessons associated with the sport.
?️‍♀️ Sometimes you can find different ways to do what you love. Inspite of not being able to play golf everyday due to my injury, teaching young kids helped me remain connected and committed to the game.
⛳️ Additionally, I decided to give back to the community through my earnings by donating them to a charity in Sri Lanka called ‘Light for Sri Lanka’. The NGO  supports economically underprivileged kids who don’t have adequate access to education. (I had closely worked with this charity during my high school school days & feel grateful to continue my support for them).

A piece of advice?
Sometimes when life challenges you with setbacks, it is hard to move on and face it. But eventually, if you persist and find different ways of doing what you love, you will succeed.”
