Can the taunts to make fun of a person push him/her to success? Perhaps yes! And, here is a case where a girl was taunted a lot, from her childhood to young age, for being obese but she took all such taunts as a challenge and worked hard to reply the society back with the coin of success, which she achieved after representing India at an international sports event in Japan that fetched her eighth rank making her a sportsperson of international repute.
Today this hardworking sportsperson-Upasana Mahajan, 32, is much satisfied with his life. Presently she also works as Academic Specialist in BYJUS and language teacher in one of the reputed schools of Jammu but she proudly flaunts her identity as an International Powerlifter.
Upasana, who graduated in ECE Engineering and holds MBA degree was felicitated with Alumni award by her Alma Mater Lovely Professional University.
In an exclusive interaction with the Excelsior, she informed that so far she has played more than 13 tournaments including a world championship in Japan in the year 2019.
