Felix Auger-Aliassime Opens Up On Importance Of Sharing, Helping Others

Felix Auger-Aliassime talks about the importance of sharing and helping others


Canadian tennis star Felix Auger-Aliassime says sharing is very important and admits that one of the main reasons he wants to be very successful is because it gives him more resources to help others. Auger-Aliassime, who turned 22 in August, launched #FAAPointsForChange in 2020 in partnership with BNP Paribas and the NGO CARE.

The foundation has the objective of promoting the education of children in Togo. “I try to have a global and long-term vision of my life. Today I am a tennis player, but it will not always be like that. As a young man who builds his life, I have to build my career.

But it’s not really selfish because the best way to help one day in a solid way is to already be well in their place. If I have a good career, if I become the best tennis player I can be, if I’m a role model for young people, I’ll have a lot more means and time to help when it stops.

If I had started to spread out from my teenage or professional beginnings to give my time everywhere, I would now be a less good player and could help less. In the end, no one would win,» Auger-Aliassime told Le Parisien.

Auger-Aliassime wants to give back and help others

Enjoying a career high ranking of No. 6 in the world, Auger-Aliassime is one of the most talented and promising players in the world. When Auger-Aliassime finishes his career, he will surely have plenty of reasons to celebrate.

But he insists that he will not forget about others, as he promises that those in need will also benefit from his success. “I cannot speak for the others but I am aware of the help I received, which is not the same for everyone.

I have childhood friends who weren’t as successful as I was. I don’t do this to have a better conscience or to tell myself that I’m going to sleep better at night. But if I did nothing, I would surely feel less comfortable with myself. Sharing is important,» Auger-Aliassime added.
