To be studying my dream program with the support of the Commonwealth Games Scholarship was really amazing, because it was seeing India take the Gold in Table Tennis during the 2006 Commonwealth Games (Melbourne) that inspired my love for the sport. I still can’t believe the fact that I was part of the organising committee for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games which was something I would have only hoped to see on TV. Griffith has given me an amazing opportunity to be part of a major international sporting event; an experience that will echo through my future career.
