She says, "Failure is my partner. The doors have always been shut on my mouth. People used to tell me that you do not look like Miss India, you will never reach the level of Miss India. But all these I have learned one thing from things and that what people will say is not necessary. It is important that I know what I want and what I am capable of. It will be hard work for me and not the people, that's why It is important that we believe in ourselves. "
