National Squash Team member Jemyca Aribado, armed with experience after her first overseas tilt, is now ready to compete in the Malaysian Squash Tour 4 slated on October 5 to 7, in Penang, Malaysia. The Professional Squash Association (PSA) is the organizer of the tournament.
The 22-year old Aribado first tested her mettle against foreign opponents in the recent China Squash Challenge Cup where she lost to Sarah Cardwell of Australia in the quarterfinals.
Aribado only became a PSA member in July.
Aribado said that the experience she gained in the tournament has taught her valuable lessons, “I learned that success is not determined by a one upset against a big player or just having a few good results.”
The 2016 Menpora Kijono Cup champion said that success means having a clear mindset of what you want to achieve in the future.
“Success is achieved by controlling my emotions and having a clear mindset – most importantly by keeping a consistent result over time,” added Aribado.
