Manya Omprakash Singh is a daughter of an autorickshaw driver. She was born in Kushinagar, Uttar Pradesh. Manya Singh has shared an inspirational story about her childhood and struggles. She revealed the story in an Instagram post that also features photos of her family. Manya penned down an emotional and equally inspirational note with the pictures. She talked about how her mother mortgages her jewelry for her studies. Manya also wrote that she runs away from home and does various jobs to survive, like cleaning utensils in the evening and working at a call center at night. She wrote,

“I’ve spent numerous nights without food and sleep. I’ve spent many afternoons walking for miles on end. My blood, sweat, and tears have amalgamated into courage to pursue my dreams. Being a rickshaw driver’s daughter, I never had the opportunity to attend school as I had to start working in my teens. All the clothes I had were hand-me-downs. I yearned for books, but luck wasn’t in my favour. Eventually, my parents mortgaged whatever little jewellery my mother had to ensure that I paid my exam fees in order to earn a degree.”

Manya added how she ran away from home and started working and managed to complete her studies.

“My mother has suffered a lot to provide for me. At 14, I ran away from home. I somehow managed to complete my studies in the day, became a dishwasher in the evening and worked at a call centre at night. I’ve walked hours to reach places so I could save the rickshaw fare. I am here today at the VLCC Femina Miss India 2020 stage to uplift my father, my mother, and my young brother and to show the world that all is possible if you are committed to yourself and your dreams.”
