I want to share with you why I love tennis—and how it has defined my strengths—by relating the top five lessons I have learned from the sport. Bringing the game to a wider audience to spread these values is why I want to work in tennis. I believe technology will play a crucial role in sharing these lessons with others, which can prove useful on and off the court (I’m talking about you, business world).
How to Think Strategically
Understanding Risk vs. Reward
Respect for Others
How to be Poised Under Pressure
I credit much of the success in my own life to the hours I’ve spent on the court and believe it is the perfect agent for social change. I just hope I get the chance to launch my career in tennis, share these lessons with others, and grow the game, as a member of the MIT Sloan class of 2018.
I made these videos using:
Playsight: An interactive smart court that provides professional-level analysis of the game.
QuickTime: Apple’s QuickTime has a feature to record your screen, and since Playsight doesn’t allow for downloads, I had to get creative.
YouTube: I used YouTube to host the videos.
Giphy: Giphy allows users to create and edit their own .gif files.
