Playing basketball for more than a decade, I have come to realise that sports offer a great metaphor for life. Being a team sport, basketball has not only helped me learn to co-ordinate with others but it has also taught me the importance of taking initiatives and leading whenever necessary. During my law graduation, I have been actively involved in organizing and initiating student-run programmes which helped me acquire leadership and teamwork skills. Being a regular participant at debates and moot court competitions, I pioneered a Moot Court Initiative at my university with the desire to inculcate the culture of mooting within my juniors. I am also an active member of Debating Society which organises regular debating sessions for students, and orientation and practise sessions for the freshmen.

Even though it took some convincing he did end up coming around to the idea. However, Antigone was very passionate about her decision in burying him from the beginning, whereas with Kreon he was extremely against it until he was convinced and realized that it actually was the right thing to do. Antigone is an admirable character for a few different reasons, but something that sets her apart from the others is that she
Growing up there wasn’t a really anything to make me feel like me until the first day I picked up a basketball and actually knew what I was doing with it. Basketball has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember. I still hear the sound of shoes squeaking and the sound the ball makes going through the hoop after a perfect shot.
