Czink said it was a great experience participating in the programme. “We lead a privileged life and it is great. So, it is necessary for us to give back to the kids who are not as privileged. It helps to put things into perspective for us and I hope we can try and motivate and encourage them through this visit today,” said the world No. 41 Czink. “It is important for them to know that they can achieve what they want through hard work and perseverance.”
