She will inspire every girl in the village to follow her dreams, says the mother of Sania Mirza, the first Muslim girl in the country to be selected to become a fighter pilot in the Indian Air Force (IAF). Hailing from Jasovar village in Uttar Pradesh, Sania will also be the state’s first woman IAF pilot

“I was inspired by Flight Lieutenant Avani Chaturvedi and seeing her, I decided to join the NDA. I hope the younger generation will someday get inspired by me,” Sania Mirza told

Sania’s father Shahid Ali, who is a TV mechanic in Mirzapur, said: “She was always inspired by Avani Chaturvedi and wanted to become like her.”
