Enrolled in the Government Blind School at Basistha in Guwahati, she completed her school education and passed the Matriculation examination from there. Thereafter, she took admission at the Rangiya HS School in Class-XI and passed the course with a helper, who assisted her in the examination hall.

Despite all odds, she never stepped back and continued her struggle to become enlightened by dint of her consistent hard work. Obviously, she completed the BA first semester under KKHSOU and is presently persuing the next semester.
