Other information that could be of interest to the media
I truly love playing badminton. I first started playing in Nunavut with my father and haven't put my racquet down since. I am highly competitve in the national circuit, although I have to overcome many setbacks and injuries along the way. However, I have never thought of quitting as an option so I keep perservering because of my love of the sport.
