Anushka Sharma, a resident of Indore, claimed the 20th position in the UPSC Civil Services Exam. Inspired by her cousin, Himani Sharma, Anushka aspires to continue her family legacy and become the next UPSC officer. After graduating from the City University of New York, Anushka became a civil servant. She attributed her success to her role model and cousin, who supported and guided her throughout her journey. Anushka’s determination paid off, as she cleared the exam on her third attempt without attending any coaching institutes, relying instead on self-preparation and mock tests. She aims to focus on women’s empowerment and improving healthcare facilities.

While working at a private bank, she simultaneously prepared for the Civil Services Exam. Sanskriti’s exceptional academic, social, cultural, and sports achievements showcased her dedication and passion for serving the people.
