Born in Kushinagar Manya is a daughter of an autorickshaw driver. Through an Instagram post, the beauty queen had shared her struggle story back in December 2020. She stated that she hoped to inspire others by using the platform provided by Miss India. 

"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 the 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 to earn a degree. My mother has suffered a lot to provide for me," she said.

Elaborating further Manya added, "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."

Manya's story is truly an inspiration. Along with Manya, Manasa Varanasi was crowned Femina Miss India World 2020 and Manika Sheokand was crowned as Miss Grand India 2020.
