She has been a topper all through her life and has stood first in BA, LLB and LLM.

Sonal faced many financial challenges and hence could not join any coaching centre. However, she prepared for the exam on her own and studied for 10-12 hours daily.

Sonal says, she never had any distractions. “I have never logged on to any social media as I was focussed to attain my goal,” she said.

Sonal, in class 12 CBSE exam, had topped the state in Economics and was the all-India topper in Hindi.

Pursuing her post graduation from Mohan Lal Sukhadia University, she topped her BA.LL.B and LL.M exams and received two gold medals and the Chancellor’s medal at the convocation held on December 22.

Now, Sonal aims at providing a comfortable life to her parents.

“My father has worked hard since years to give us good life and education and  has even taken loans for our education. We have seen him waking up at 4 am and sleeping around midnight as he has been engaged in milking cows and selling milk. So now it comes my turn to take care of my parents,” she says.
