Peon's daughter makes it to IAS
Chandigarh, May 07 (PTI) Sandeep Kaur, the daughter of a peon from Morinda in Punjab, has made it to the IAS.
Sandeep is the eldest of her three siblings and attributes her success to her father employed in Morinda sub-tehsil.
Citing her father as her immense source of inspiration behind her success, Sandeep, a civil engineer from Panjab Engineering College, had the sole goal of making it to the IAS.
"I dedicated myself to preparing for the civil services and failure at earlier attempts made me stronger to prepare for the examinations," she says.
Her dream is to work against female foeticide which is a big problem in Punjab.
Meanwhile, in a congratulatory message, Chief Minister Prakash Singh Badal complimented Sandeep Kaur and her family members, saying she had done the state proud by making it to the IAS despite her economically poor family background.
Hats off to her
