Kriti Puri (15), the wonder girl of Chandigarh, who has excelled in sports, studies and cultural activities will appear in a 30-minute documentary ‘Young Achievers’ on Jalandhar Doordarshan on Tuesday at 4 pm. Kriti, a Class X student of Carmel Convent School, Sector 9, has a long list of achievements to her credit at this young age. Kriti said in an interview that she wanted to attain proficiency in all spheres of life and would like to become an IFS officer. She has learnt various classical dances, which have helped her develop proficiency in artistic skating. But as there was no good coach available for artistic skating in the city, Kriti tried to achieve efficiency in speed and roller hockey events. Kriti has represented India at the Asian Roller skating meet in Chinese Taipei in 2001 and for the past few years have been participating in national skating meets. Kriti is good in studies also. She has received award for her outstanding contribution from the Vice-President of India.

Kriti was instrumental in helping Chandigarh women roller hockey team win a bronze medal in the just-concluded 32nd National Games at Hyderabad.
