She was also offered admission by LSE, Cambridge, University of Pennsylvania (US), UC Berkeley, and New York University for pursuing an LLM.

Her articles have been published in national dailies like Indian Express, Live Mint and international portals like Oxford Human Rights blog.

She advised students to be consistent, ambitious, bold, perseverant, disciplined and evolving in nature to succeed. She strongly believes in the law of attraction.
