She started practicing for 7 to 8 hours a day and obviously following a good diet as well.   Winning at the State and National level was not so difficult and then she became hungry for more.  She had won a gold medal at the 4 Nations Boxing Cup held in Serbia. She is a three-time national champion and over the years has won many accolades in Punjab boxing championships.
