When I was in Class VIII then again got selected for the school Handball Team and the result was a grand victory. Following which was selected for State Level from Udaipur District. During the State Level Competitions I visited many districts to play the matches. Considering the performance at the state level, I was selected for the National level Handball Competition, Delhi, representing in the Rajasthan Camp.
In the Camp around 30 players from different districts came and they practised for 15 days in that camp Noticing the dedication and my passion for sports I was selected for the Rajasthan Handball Team.

By the grace of God and blessings from my parents, Principal, coach and cooperation of my friends, I had tremendous achievements.
