“I occasionally use my horse to travel to school. That was my last day of my exam. I have in fact two horses Ranakrish and Jhanvi and a team to train them,” she told Sputnik.

The next time you complain about having to wake up early to go to school, think about the extraordinary journey Krishna makes every day. Her dedication to her studies is so inspiring!
