I am from Bangalore, India - a Football Life Coach, Professional Football Freestyler a Football Clown and founder of Sparky Football - a non-profit football initiative, which uses football as a life skill module for social change. I am the Community Impact Coach Coaches Across Continents (Partners of United Nations) in India and also one of the country's best Football Freestylers. On the academic front, I am currently in my final year of college pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology, Journalism and Literature.
Football is not merely a sport for me - it’s a tool to create a difference. With the help of unique curriculum, passion for the game and love for kids, I use football as a teaching module to educate (especially the underprivileged) the importance of critical life skills and holistic development. My own personal journey of dedication and self-responsibility is my driving force. My students at "Sparky Football" are not just talented Footballers, they are gentleman with impeccable character and a strong sense of responsibility towards themselves and society – this is what I hope to instil in kids worldwide.
My motto – Make Your Wounds Proud - demonstrates my organisation's purpose. To rise above the odds, be a proud example to others and demonstrate that it’s not the past that makes you but your choices and your decisions. I merely use Football and Life-Skill Coaching in this Journey.
