Women Fitness President, Namita Nayyar had the wonderful opportunity to talk to her about her journey. Read on.
How did golf happen to you?
I was lucky that all my family played golf and were members of a private club. When I turned 13, I was invited to join as a junior member and that is when I began to play.
Was sports an active part of your childhood & what motivated you to take up this sport?
Sports were everything in my childhood! I tried and played everything! From gymnastics to surf lifesaving I was lucky to get exposed to many sports. I was naturally good at most sports, so it gave me a lot of confidence! My Dad encouraged me to take up golf and I was also motivated by my older brothers’ cute friends that played!! I found it very difficult in the beginning and it was not until I got professional instruction that I was able to hit the ball! I really enjoyed the challenge.
You are a versatile woman- Professional Athlete, Model, and Entrepreneur – which role excites you the most? And which you find the most challenging?
Entrepreneur excites me the most – it’s so fun to build a business! There are so many challenging aspects and things to learn daily! It’s also so rewarding to help customers! An athlete is by far the most challenging because your performance is on a scoreboard and scrutinized by the public. It’s a lot of pressure and a lot of alone time. Not to mention all the travel and lack of stability.
