I am a badminton player and I have been playing since I was 4 years old. My parents used to take me to the courts and I would practice with them until I got tired. I started playing competitively when I was in high school, but my first tournament was in college. In my first tournament, there were only two players from our university and we won the match easily. After that, we went on to win the next two tournaments as well. My favorite part about playing badminton is being able to compete against people from all around the world at different levels of competition. LinkedIn
