Talking about her struggles she was quoted in an interview, "You have to be prepared mentally, and I think this is true for men and women both—you will be working when everyone else will be partying or celebrating Diwali. You’ve really got to love what you do, and you’ve got to put in everything that you have to this job. It is one of those things that need you to be physically present. There is no other way to do it." She has definitely worked hard to be in a place that she is and celebrated the joyous occasion with a beer pong.
