Ajmira Babi, Telangana's first girijan girl to become pilot, shared her success story in a recent interview with BBC. A native of Manchiryal, Babi is a graduate in Sociology and Human Resources and has an MBA.

When I first visited an airport, I was fascinated by the ambience and decided that I wanted to work in airspace, she said. Since none of my family friends are in this field, it was a tough journey for me, Babi said. Traditionally, girls are encouraged to pursue careers in professions like teaching and medicine, but I always had different plans, she added.
