Sharing her family photos on Instagram, Manya wrote, “I have spent many nights without food and sleep. I walked for many afternoons on foot. My blood, sweat, and tears became food for my soul and I dared to dream. As the daughter of a rickshaw driver, I never had the opportunity to go to school because I had to start working in my teens.”

She used to walk for miles to reach someplace so that she could save the fare of the rickshaw. She said her mother has suffered a lot for her.
