When and where I began playing and why?
The first badminton competition I played was a local under-13 juniors and I was nine years old. That was also my first singles win! My dad got me started playing by having a hit with me on weekends. Currently, I enjoy being able to travel to amazing places and meet amazing people. through this sport.
