Beating the Odds

Sana Mahmud, Project Officer

Project Officer, Right to Play Pakistan

"There are things we tend to take for granted, and one of them is what all we have gone through to be where we are today. It has been so rewarding for me to reflect on my own life in sports and try to stitch it up neatly in a short video to share with others. It also required a little courage, as showing vulnerability publicly is not my strongest suit! (pun intended)."

Beating the Odds

This digital story is a brief glimpse into Sana's life as an athlete and how she has had to deal with injury and pain during her national playing career. The story however, is not about despair, but rather hope. Hope of becoming a better and stronger version of herself after a minor setback, and truly appreciating the resilience of the human mind and body.
