Later in my school, I joined taekwondo class just for self-defense, and my parents think that I can’t go for the future in Taekwondo as it is an injurious game. I’m a girl. So they were just allowing me for self-defense. Later I taught my First Tournament and I won the gold medal in that. So my confidence and interest in this Game increased. In my first year of this game, I was selected for the nationals. Even my coach didn’t believe in me, and then he started to work hard on me, from there my journey started.
