Talking about not getting admission to other institutes because they believed that Kashyap would spoil the environment, she said "Initially, no other institutes were ready to give me admission and denied saying that I would hamper the environment in their institute. Despite insisting, they denied me several times. After getting admission to this institution, my life improved drastically. I got help from the government as well, and hence I have been able to reach here."

"My family supported me a lot. My parents, brothers and sisters stayed with me in the tough days. They are the reason why I am sitting here." Further, she said "Rehman sir, who helped me get admission in this institute has formed history today. He has proved that a teacher is the biggest gift. I owe all my wins in this training period to him," she said talking about her family being supportive.
