Becoming a pilot was a dream for her since childhood but it was not an easy ride for her.

She struggled to come out of stereotypes of society she was living in and work towards building her dream. 

“I was never a desk person and was very good with Maths and Science. I never wanted to get into engineering, but a friend’s suggestion to become a pilot got me thinking. I went to Arizona in the US for pilot training. It was not that I dreamt of becoming a pilot, but once I started flying, it turned into a passion.”
