In an interview with Economic Times, she said “I went with my parents, and we walked the red carpet leading to his office. He was sitting at his table, waiting for us. This was the most thrilling moment of my life! He gave me a signed copy of a poem. On his computer, he also showed me the missile he had worked on. He was gently humorous and very inspiring. Meeting him was a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I’m so glad I received that chance”. She was one among the 100 Change Agents and Newsmakers of the decade by Deccan Chronicle.
