Lobsang, 17, table tennis
When Lobsang moved to the UK from Nepal, he was shy and felt like an outsider. After working with Greenhouse Sports Coach Annie, he dedicated his time to training in table tennis and gained confidence in himself, both on and off the table. He also forged new friendships and received recognition on the national circuit, earning himself opportunities to train throughout Europe. His dedication for sport was then replicated in the classroom, where he improved his commitment to his studies and achieved 9 A stars and 3 A’s in his GCSE’s. Today, he continues to push himself to succeed over and above the expectations of his parents and coaches. Lobsang hopes to continues his studies at university next year.
