She has a great interest in the Block Chain technology.

She changed her strategy and cleared the IAS Prelims Exam.
She designed her strategy stressing the coverage and revision of the IAS Syllabus.
Her family especially her husband and father supported and motivated her by stating that “keep your focus on the future and do not regret about the past”.
They always motivated her by saying that you were always good in your studies and you can do it.
The paucity of time was the biggest challenge for her and she says that she could not complete her targets due to the lack of time.
