Sravan Karne | Gorlavedu, Telangana
When Yuvian Sravan Karne was introduced to YouWeCan Foundation’s work – he found an accessible way to make a significant difference. In conversation with Sravan, on what makes him amplify the YWC message.
Question 1. Introduce yourself. Where are you from & how have you become involved with the foundation?
Ans. Hi, I am Sravan Karne. I come from a place called Gorlavedu, a village in Bhupalpally District, Telangana. I am a die-hard fan of Yuvraj Singh since his debut in 2000. I got involved with YouWeCan foundation because of Shabnam maa – the real hero of YWC.
Question 2. What motivated you to become involved with YWC activities?
Ans. It is impossible to describe all the factors, but here are a few of them :
Question 3. What is a memorable moment that you’ve experienced in your involvement with YWC?
Ans. Again, it is very tough to stick with 1 or 2 moments! I got to meet Yuvi paaji 16 times. Each and every moment of those 16 instances is memorable – working closely with him for YouWeCan, receiving appreciations for my contributions are all memorable for me. I got to meet Sujan Kumar, who is an active volunteer at YouWeCan. He truly inspired me with his hardwork and determination.
Question 4. What do you aspire to do?
Ans. • I wanted to be a cricketer. I couldn’t fulfill this dream because of my financial situation. I am now working as a finance associate at an MNC in Hyderabad.
Question 5. Has Yuvraj Singh inspired your life? How and why?
Ans. Yuvraj Singh has been my guru and inspiration since 2000, and shall continue to be until my last breath.
I love Yuvi’s never-give-up attitude. I too faced couple of challenges during the initial stages of my cricket career. Yuvi paa says “Never give up on the things you love.” Drawing inspiration from this quote – I kept working hard. As a result, I played U-19 level, and made it to senior nationals thrice. I was also a nets bowler for the Sunrisers Hyderabad IPL team from 2017 to 2019. “When life knocks you down you have a choice to get up. So, get up and do it again…” says Yuvi Paa. I shall keep applying this quote in whatever I do in life.
