She is now an inspiration to many people who dream to achieve success at a young age. She has every reason to remember, relish and rejoice the taste of success. Hailing from Kollam in Kerala, she is a proud daughter of a former Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel named PT Sunil Kumar.

It was a major coup to qualify the exam in her first attempt as she secured 151st rank. Ever since the results were announced, Sushree was a bit busy communicating with friends and relatives over the phone and was delighted to receive countless praises at the best scene.

Casting her mind back to childhood, Sushree remembers a sweet memory back in 2008, when she was 14 years old, she once got a golden opportunity to present a bouquet to the former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and his wife Gurcharan Kaur.

She made it very clear at that age saying that she wants to become a civil servant and in return, the then PM Manmohan Singh offered his sincere blessings. “I told him that I want to become a civil servant. He blessed me and I was very happy and motivated,” she told India Today.

She expressed that she was mentored by N Ramachandran, former DGP of Assam and Meghalaya. When asked about her source of motivation for cracking the civil services examination, Sushree said her father played a major part in the build-up to success. Her father was an integral part of the Special Protection Group (SPG) between 2004 and 2010. His active presence in security team protecting former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh is highly noted.

After playing his trade in several challenging assignments in CRPF, her father retired from the job so that he could guide and motivate her daughter in relishing her dream of becoming a civil servant. Even the CRPF has also showered their praises on Sushree by taking it to the official Twitter handle. They also conveyed hearty wishes to her for a bright future.

“CRPF congratulates Inspector (Retd) PT Sunil Kumar on the success of his daughter Sushree. The member of CRPF family is the youngest to qualify the civil service exam this year. The native of Kollam, Kerala, secured 151st rank in her first attempt. We wish her a bright future (sic).”
