Rishika, who was busy receiving phone calls since the time the result was announced, she just can’t hide her excitement after she was declared the school topper.

Last year, we decided to move to Jamshedpur for my Plus 2 studies,” she said. Rishika further said, “I want time to decide about my future course of action, but I don’t want to do CA as my aim is to be an IAS officer or do MBA. Now my focus is on getting to top DU College.”
Resident of Contractors Area in Bistupur, Rishika’s mother Sushma Agarwal is a housewife, while her two elder brothers are CA and mechanical engineer.
