The road to success may be a steep uphill climb but with patience, faith, and resiliency, all things will come in perfect time. This holds true for the talented Prince Rahim Babar who juggles between his studies, business, basketball hobby, and modeling all at the same time.
Born on Oct. 24, 1996 in Manila to Sohail Babar and Jenelyn Babar, the 5-foot-10 head-turner played as point guard for LPU Coecsa MBT and LPU EE MBT in LPU Cavite.
Apart from being a basketball player, he is also into modeling and acting. A product of the Star Magic workshop, he was cast as one of the moon chasers in ABS-CBN’s La Luna Sangre.
His idol in the NBA is triple-double machine Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“I like him because he never gives up, and he is always going hard on and off the court,” says Rahim of his idol.
Asked about how he was able to balance sports and studies, he emphasized setting your priorities and time management.
“It’s really hard to focus on studies when your heart is into playing basketball. You just have to know what your passion or priority is and create a schedule for your day-to-day activities so you can fully enjoy the sport that makes you happy,” he shares.
“I really don’t remember my career-high because I played a lot of games but I think what’s worth sharing is the first time I played basketball. I scored 40 plus points in a single game and was awarded mythical five of that tournament. It was Villaggio Ignatius League,” he adds.
Rahim’s favorite shot is pull-up jumper and penetration explaining that he is a one-on-one player so he loves going to the rim all the way,” Rahim says.
The promising cager guested in 2017 in PTV 4’s morning show Bagong Pilipinas and had since modeling for various brands. He also joined Mr. Grand Philippines in 2018.
