Aishwarya, who has been a model at the Bombay Times Fashion Week, Lakme Fashion Week, Amazon Fashion Week, and walked for designers like Manish Malhotra, says she was always drawn towards academics. So this decision wasn't taken overnight.
I thought that since I had always been good at academics, I should maybe take a break for a year or two and give civil services a try because it had always been my dream. I had to switch off my phone, social media, everything, to focus on the exam and the result is here.

Aishwarya's father Colonel Ajay Kumar is the Commanding Officer of NCC Telangana Battalion, Karimnagar and so the model too decided that her ultimate goal was to serve the nation. And while there are growing opportunities for women in the army, she decided to do her part by becoming an IAS officer. Aishwarya's story is an exemplary example of how we don't need a box to define us.
