From an early age, I realised that I don't have an option other than education. My teachers have been very supportive of me. Even during my college days, when I told my professor that I am preparing for an exam, they used to guide me and helped me to issue books from the library."
"I really want to thank all my teachers who have supported me from nursery to my master's degree. Though my master's degree was completely online, I gained a lot of knowledge from my professors," added Sakshi.
Sakshi's father, Bodh Raj Sharma feels elated and has no words to express his happiness.
Her father said, "I feel very proud. I have only been attending calls and attending the relatives who are coming to congratulate us. I don't even get the time to eat."
The proud father Bodh Raj Sharma is currently the Sarpanch of Devak village of Sunderbani tehsil situated in Rajouri district. (ANI)
