Some becomes the rebel and ultimately an idol for everyone like 25 years old Rupali. Rupali belongs to Nayagarh village of Koraput district in Odisha. She may have come from humble beginnings, but she had big dreams and refused to surrender to constraints.

Inspired by hope, Rupali made her way to the AROH’s Bhubaneswar DDU GKY training center and enrolled herself for Retail Trade. A tenacious and driven professional, she has been proving herself since her first job in March 2015, where she worked as Sales Executive at a salary of Rs 7500 per month and then with quick increment to Rs 10000 per month and now she has excelled her trade and is working as Assistant Store Manager in Leading Japanese Retail Store MINISO at a salary package of Rs 18000 per month.
