According to her, “Had I studied regularly, I would have probably passed with very good numbers. And someone used to do the job of belt. Belt job was one of my passion. Whenever I went for a job, I was made fun of because my marks were not good, once I went to the gym, I broke my arm on the very first day, so I was made fun of for being a girl among all the boys.”
But due to poor financial condition of the family, she decided to do a job. Due to Priya’s good personality, she also got a job in a gym. In which Priya was also motivated by seeing people exercising. And started gym training. And within a few years, Priya became a great bodybuilder.
