Purvi

My name is Purvi Reddy and I am 11 years old. I was inspired by my sister to do archery. I have been doing archery for about a year. My achievements include…

  • 2nd place medal in the 2024 California State JOAD Indoor Championship (U13)

  • 2nd place medal in the 2024 California State Indoor Championship (U13)

 

My hobbies outside of archery include drawing and singing. I enjoy being a part of Charity Arrows. The thing I like most about Charity Arrows is how we make arrow pens out of broken arrows to help charities. I hope you donate to this good cause by buying our arrow pens.
