Hailing from a ‘Royal Family’ gave her all the luxury, but this fairytale story was hers only till the age of 6. She lost her father at a very tender age, from then, the misery of her life started. She started reading inspirational books and writing her goals. Her journey started with realizing that she wished to prove everyone who criticized her, wrong. She decided to fulfil her parents’ dream and reach to the top. She didn't want her diamonds back, but wanted to bring her family legacy back, which is her real treasure.
