She would stitch clothes and go for paddy field work during her holidays to earn money for her higher education. That was the main reason she developed a massive interest in agriculture.

During her college days, she was an active coordinator in NSS and that taught her lot of lessons to serve society. She attended an NSS camp at school of special children (deaf and dumb school) and was amazed by the way they confidently dealt with everything in their lives. This made her realise that she could do so much in her life and many others’.
With the quest to serve society, she was volunteering with Bodhi Tree Foundation that has an ambition to empowering rural India. As a volunteer, she met more a lot more rural graduate students and found the opportunity to learn many things from them. This gave her immense satisfaction and played an important role in shaping her dreams to serve the society.
