She is now a flying officer of the Indian Air force.
In the presence of IAF chief BKS Bhadauria, flying officer Aanchal Gangwal got commissioned as an officer. It was a proud moment for her but, her father was equally proud and happy with all that she had achieved. Aanchal said:
Today as I become an officer, it still feels surreal. It is a dream come true.

When I told my parents that I want to be in defence, they were a little worried like any parent. But they never tried to stop me. In fact, they have always been the pillars of my life.
People on social media also congratulated Aanchal and her parents for her achievement.

Aanchal has proved to all of us that hard-work, dedication and determination is all you need to make your dreams come true. She is an inspiration and a role model for all the young girls out there who have similar dreams.
She dreamt of joining the IAF after seeing an officer helping people during the 2013 Kedarnath tragedy.
Congratulations! This is a proud moment, indeed.
