With immense positivity and energy, Chaitanya lives by the motto ‘Dream, believe, achieve.’ He teaches us not to be insecure about our dreams, pursue our passion come what may and envision ‘What if I succeed’ rather than ‘What if I fail’!

As Indian kids, we were often asked the question “What will you grow up to be?” to which our answer

was either doctor of the machines or engineer of blood and bones. Chaitanya Deshpande was one such

individual who got pushed into the former. At the age of nineteen, he dropped out of his Engineering

Institute to pursue his passion – football freestyling, an art quite rare in our society, a profession even

more so.

Chaitanya became the first professional Football Freestyler from Pune. In the top 16 for the past five

years and currently ranked 6th according to FIAC Online Championship, he has truly embraced the joy of

making his hobby his profession. With immense positivity and energy, Chaitanya lives by the motto

‘Dream, believe, achieve.’ He teaches us not to be insecure about our dreams, pursue our passion come

what may and envision ‘What if I succeed’ rather than ‘What if I fail’!
