Sudikshya comes from a small town called Rivan and lives in a one-bedroom mud and stone house with her mother father and two younger siblings. Her mother looks after the children while her father grows vegetables and rice for the family to eat, he is sometimes able to sell some produce to get money for the family; he also works on surrounding farms when he is needed, but this, unfortunately, is not very often. If Sudikshya weren't able to study at Shamrock school, she would have to walk to a local school an hour away which would provide a poor quality of education. Sudikshya works hard as she dreams of becoming a doctor because she wants to help others. She would like to attend college after she finishes school but is unsure how she will afford to do so as her parents are unable to support her. Sudikshya has now been sponsored which is crucial so she will be able to provide a better life for herself and her family.
