Life mein kuch bada karna tha bachpan se hi, says Sanchita Sharma (29) from Nawanshahr who has topped the UP civil services exam in her second attempt. As nobody in her family has been in the services or in this field, her selection has brought a bundle of joy and an enormous amount of happiness for her parents. For Sanchita, it has given a purpose and meaning to her life.

Sanchita completed her studies in 2013 from Panjab University. She has done dual degree courses in BE (Chemical Engineering) and MBA. Because of some issues in the family, she didn’t do any job after she passed out of the university. So, it was in 2016, she started preparing for civil services as she wanted to do something ‘meaningful’ in her life.

“While doing my degree courses, I just wanted to do a job in a corporate house. But when I joined the internship, it wasn’t satisfying and fulfilling at all. It was then I realised that this was not something I always wished for. My dream was to achieve something big and do better for society,” Sanchita shared.

Sanchita’s father is running a Jan Aushadhi Kendra store in Nawanshahr, while her mother has worked as a lecturer in a college in Banga. Her sister is a dentist who has her clinic in the district itself.

The proud father of Sanchita said: ‘Asi te vyapari aadmi haan. Saade ghar vich kade koi nai si is taraf.’ He felt glad to get such recognition after his daughter’s achievement.

“My parents feel that they have got honour in society after the news and I feel proud that I could give this happiness to them,” the topper said. “Now, I am just looking forward to serving my nation,” Sanchita added.
