The Delhi lad shared his football experiences with the underprivileged and handed gifts to motivate them...India striker Robin Singh spent a day at 'My Angels Academy', a non-profit football organization for underprivileged youth, based out of Vikaspuri, New Delhi.
Robin, who was born and brought up in Noida, is a graduate of the renowned Tata Football Academy (TFA) and has plied his trade for East Bengal for the past three seasons.
He participated in an interactive session with the children where he shared his journey from being a Delhi NCR youth to representing India at the international level. He also learned about how 'My Angels Academy' has transformed the lives of children from the slums through football.
Robin answered questions on everything from nutrition to the importance of having the right attitude. The group, which included more than 50 aspiring young footballers, then made their way to the football pitch where they could witness some of the striker's skills firsthand.
“It was my pleasure to interact with such talented kids. Their zeal and enthusiasm reminded me of my childhood days. I would like to thank Mr. Sylvester Peter for inviting me to My Angles Academy and Libero Sports for organizing the visit as it was truly an unforgettable experience,” said the Indian striker, who won the hearts of the nation's football fans by scoring the decisive penalty against Cameroon in the Nehru Cup final last year.
Sylvester Peter, the founder of My Angels Academy said, “It was a wonderful and enriching experience for our children to be able to interact so closely with an Indian National Team player from Delhi NCR as most of them dream of representing India one day. Robin not only filled the children’s minds with excellent tips, he also won over their hearts by gifting them Nike footballs.”
