Sreedhanya was overwhelmed by the result and applauds, stated ” I wanted to join the services after I met the previous sub collector of Wayanad Samba Siva Rao. I was working on a project under him. There are other IAS, who helped me in my journey by finding me, helping me in interviews and preparations. But my backbone of the success has been the fortune IAS Academy in Thiruvananthapuram.”
Though, the result of the 2018 UPSC examination declared Kanishak Kataria, Bombay IITian on the top of the list and Shruthi Jayant Desmukh on rank 5th amongst the first in the female candidates.
Ms. Suresh’s achievement is inspiring other students of her community and her result is an evidence that hard work is recognised sooner or later!
