As they are in 12th and 11th standard in school, this opportunity will impact their school results, giving them a chance at a Sports Scholarship to University or a government job application, essentially life-changing. All 3 athletes are attending local government-run higher secondary schools and are studying through their native language Tamil.
This achievement shows a greater purpose to their parents, their peers, school, and community towards the value of skateboarding in their lives. Beyond a Sports Achievement, it will create ripples in the community to encourage younger athletes to take up sports and stay in school. They potentially change the life of their families through securing 3rd level education or employment and bring hope and great pride to their village.
