Sharma has said she owes a lot, including her being, to the Indian Army growing up in and adapting to dynamic, ever-changing environments through her father’s service as an officer. A Kargil War veteran, his posting to remote areas in India added to Sharma’s “personal growth” as a defence ward, she said on Army Day in 2017, as per Hindustan Times.

“Parents from defence background have a more liberated set of values which adds to the inherent confidence and self-belief their children display.”
