She expressed that her coach is her role model. "My role model is my coach. My coach is very passionate about working in archery. We try to focus on whatever we do. In sport, winning and losing will continue. One shouldn't lose hope. Until the last point, the game is always open, so one should keep fighting until the last point is played."

When asked about the rise of archers in India, she made a pertinent point about how the availability of facilities has helped archers grow in India.

"If the athletes are provided with good facilities and equipment, then we will see a rise of archers in India. Many good academies and coaches have helped archers move forward in their careers,” she said.
