I know Laalitya for 7 years and in that time I have been fortunate enough to witness Laalitya’s growth not only as person but as an athlete . With Laalitya you always have consistency in max effort and it’s never a question and always applies the attitude of “no stone unturned “ when it comes to improving on a day to day basis. A gritty competitor, with a positive outlook. Laalitya is a vibrant character that makes dealing with adversity as an athlete a lot easier to pull through and always upholds strong values of respecting her peers and team around her. I wish Laalitya every bit of success on this exciting journey

The biggest standout in Laalitya for me is her big heart, both on and off the court. On court, she wears her heart on her sleeve, competes hard and is a competitor you know who will not give in. If ever I want to put in a big training session, I know Laalitya is always the one to put up her hand to join. Off court, her big heart spreads kindness and she cares deeply about those around her. She’s one of the most genuine people I’ve met, and is continually seeking ways to improve herself. Laalitya is someone who I try to surround myself with as she helps me to be a better person.
