    The 23-year-old owes her success to a lot of hard work and her strong will. She stood strong in the face of adversity to reach the position she is in, making the nation proud.

    In 2018, Aishwarya Pissay had been in a crash in the Baja Aragon Rally in Spain. Last year, she had participated in the rally, where she became the first Indian to compete. Unfortunately, she crashed during the rally. The crash ruptured Aishwarya’s pancreas which turned out to be career-threatening.

    But as we can see, this in no way lowered her spirits. She came out of it stronger, and with a will to prove her capabilities once again.

    Aishwarya Pissay learned to ride a bike 5 years ago. Since then her journey has been remarkable. Today not only is she the only Indian to win a world title in motorsports but also the only women to have won five national road racing and rally championship titles.
