Hanbin’s thoughts

Sports made me. Discipline learnt through the sport taught me about hard work before glory. The countless setbacks through the year educated me on the importance of putting things in the right perspectives in life. Most importantly, sports enlightened me that the meaning of life is how we use our limited time to make a positive difference in someone else’s life.

Kerstin’s thoughts

I love how sports gives me transferable skills to things outside sports. For example, i’ve learnt to be outspoken, driven and a go-getter. If I want to excel in my career, I will take steps to improve myself to reach there. Just like in sports, if i want to run faster, hurdle better, i train and train and train. I have become a confident and resourceful person because of sports.

Kiat Xuan’s thoughts

Sport has always been a medium where we can learn life skills and acquire values in life that shape who we are. It is through all these hardships and sacrifices that were learned along the way that had shaped who I am. It is the setback and the rough journey in sports that went through, taught me so much. It is precisely what I learn in sport to pick myself back up to continue what I believe for the love of sport. Indeed sports have been the only medium that is able to teach me and allow me to grow without grumbling as I do the things I love with a passion for it.

Matthew’s thoughts

I started Powerlifting at the age of 14 and never looked back since. 7 years of being in the sport has taught me a lot. From giving me confidence to making friends for life. I dare to say now that if I put effort and sacrifice into something, that I would be good at it. Sports has given me so much from giving me a purpose to instilling values in me. It also taught me that everyone can be the best, in one way or another.

Matthias’s thoughts

Being an athlete in a competitive sport has left a positive impact in me. It has taught me to be a more disciplined, resilient & confident person in life which values are essential in whichever goal I set out to accomplish. The values that will stick with me for the rest of my life.

Nurhaliza’s thoughts

Floorball has impacted my life in many ways. These sports help shape my character and the values I learned are applicable in my daily life. Through this sport, I believe that a strong mindset will get you anywhere and anything you would want to achieve. Just like in the game, we have wins and losses in life too which makes me appreciate every moment be it good or bad. Floorball has helped me to better manage my emotions well especially when things get tough. I have also built new friendships through this sport and without these people, I would not be where I am today.
