The God taught me to love everybody but the most ones I learned to love are the athletes. Desire, determination and discipline takes me to a great deal of love towards sports. One can call me an avid sport maniac because I love to pen down some glorious content on sports. Being from journalism background with experience in media from couple of years I would like to keep this legacy going and now joining Kreedon gives me one more platform to explore the new world. I am always up to have a word on sports with a coffee.
