She struggled a lot to reach where she is today as her family and people around her were against of her decision. She dropped the year after her 12th exams and took admission in an institute to crack the CET for B-Tech but having an interest in media, she bought a book of CET- BJMC and also started studying the same. Sailing in two boats she wasn't able to crack any of the two entrance exams. She didn't lose hope and took admission in BA, Motilal Nehru Eve College (University of Delhi). When she was in the second year she took admission in Mass Communication and TV Journalism one year diploma course in YWCA (Young Women Christian Association, DELHI). In morning she used to attend classes in YWCA (Mass Comm) and in evening she used to attend classes in Motilal Nehru College (BA). Those days were the toughest days for her. Rather than enjoying her college life like other students she was more into making her career. As a result at the end of the second year she got an internship in Network 18 (CNN-IBN) and from here her career graph started then she never looked back.
