21, Na­tional Squash Player Tell us how you got here. Right now, I play squash pro­fes­sion­ally and rep­re­sent our coun­try. I got into t his mostly be­cause of my dad — he has been a squash coach for along time and I picked up the sport from there. Do you see a trend shift in the in­dus­try?I think slowly, more and more women are start­ing to play squash. It’ s no won­der, it’s a great game; the play­ers usu­ally show great sport man ship on court, and it’ s re­ally fun to play.

Who is your ins pi r at ion?DatukNi­colD avid. She’s a real fighter who doesn’t give up eas­ily. In fact, any woman who’s strong and a fighter—I as­pire to be just like her. I want to show the world that we can achieve any­thing if we put our hard work and ded­i­ca­tion into it. One thing you’ve learned in your ca­reer? That I am the only one who’s set­ting my own lim­its. I learned that we can al­ways push our­selves alit­tle bit harder if we want it badly enough.

Romper, Levi’s; watch and ear­rings, Rachel’s own
