In a recent interview, Sana revealed that parental support is one of the major factors in determining one’s commitment to the game and it matters the most in a system like Pakistan’s where sports are still not considered a full-time profession for the ladies.
“Then my parents who have worked as a team, provided us with opportunities to evolve. They’ve been great leaders and caretakers and particularly inspirational in terms of how they used available resources, firstly to improve themselves but then also towards our development so we didn’t miss out,” she said while applauding her own parents.
She has also said that the parents need to be more supportive of their children at every level so that they could get the confidence to go the extra mile and do something big.
