Former Miss India finalist cracks UPSC exam with 93rd rank

Being the daughter of a colonel, Sheoran has travelled across northern India and believes that women empowerment is a necessity of the time.

Twenty-three-year-old Aishwarya Sheoran was a common name during the 2016 Femina Miss India finalists and now she is covering the headlines with her proud achievement of cracking the prestigious 2019 Civil Services examination in her first attempt itself.

Though at this point, one would think what is the great deal and you should be talking aboutthe first rank holder, what sets her aside from the rest of the candidates is that she had been a flourishing face in the glam world. Not just aspirants but many IAS officers are lauding her for breaking the ‘stereotype against beautiful women’.

“I always wanted to be a civil servant. I did modelling as a hobby. At that age, I wanted to explore so many things. I was the head girl in my school and, in college too, I was an active member of the debate society and participated in the social service, et al. In the beauty contest, I was noticed by prominent designers like Manish Malhotra who encouraged me to participate in fashion shows. Once I returned to Delhi, I was flooded with offers. The thrill of walking on the ramp kept me going for over a year-and-half. However, as I am a nerd, I wanted to return to my first love — academics,” Sheoran was quoted saying by Indian Express.

Hailing from Rajasthan, Sheoran has gown up seeing the injustices done to women and she has always wanted to do something for women’s education and safety.

Since her mother was from Haryana, she was asked about Khap panchayat, women issues were asked during her interview round.

Being the daughter of a colonel, Sheoran has travelled across northern India and believes that women empowerment is a necessity of the time.

Though she had cracked the Common Admission Test (CAT) in 2017 and got a seat in IIM-Indore, she did not join the institute as studying management was in her books.

She was too determined in trying her luck with UPSC and if she had not cracked CSE in her maiden attempt, she would have appeared for it this year as she believes in “staying focused and not giving up easily”.

To completely focus on her eams, she had gone off all her socialmedia accounts as she realised, she cannot focus until and unless she kept her phone away.

She did not join any UPSC coaching centres and self-studied after completing her 12th in science stream with economics.
