T L U S I V E E A X R C “ Every medal that I have won is very precious to me, but getting nominated and receiving the Tamgha E Imtiaz in 2012 was one of the biggest achievements so far. ” What is your motivation that keeps you going? It has to be my love and passion for sports and fitness because I am always into doing things and challenging my abilities and pushing myself to do the best every time keeps me motivated. Who is your role model, if any? It has to be my parents. Not only did they help through difficult situations in life, but they taught me how to deal with myself in these circumstances, which has made me the person that I am today. Any word of advice for aspiring athletes? Maybe something that will help them get into the field? My advice for any budding athlete is that, you need to realise some aspects of sports and where you'd like to be; the sooner you accept this the better your chance of being an athlete. Something you would like to add about women empowerment in the sports field? It is the role of media and our people to make the efforts of women athletes more visible, because not only does it open spaces for women empowerment but also have an impact on that particular female athlete's future. Educate and provide information for the young girls and women in the country about sports and what it has to offer. Lastly, encourage them to see themselves in the roles they would like to play, be it a player or a coach. 38
