When a girl enrols in a beauty pageant, most of the time she has plans to make it big in the glam industry, right? WRONG!
Garima Yadav did not really think that way, which is why she broke many stereotypes when she decided to opt to serve her nation after winning a prestigious beauty pageant. In the year 2017, she participated in a beauty pageant called 'India's Miss Charming Face' and ended up winning the competition. She was then given many opportunities to represent herself in shows and pageants happening around the globe but she declined all the offer to achieve her dream; the dream of ‘nation serving’.
Garmia always wanted to be an IAS but she wasn’t able to crack the exam because fate had something better for her in store; the girl went on to crack the CDS exam in a single attempt and then joined the Officer’s Training Academy in Chennai.
She also commented on her training days and said: “I had a wonderful experience at the OTA. At first, it was difficult for me to cope up with the tough training, the weather was also unfavorable, I did not have very good physical standards but somehow I managed for the first few months, I didn’t give up and improved drastically. I actively participated in all curriculum activities. People have a wrong conception that you have to be good at all sports and physically strong to get selected in the SSB. That’s not true. You just should be willing to accept your weaknesses and work on them and should always endeavor to get better and better every day.”
Cheers to Lt. Garima Yadav!
