Small-town success stories are inspiring to the core due to their humble backgrounds, hard work, persistence and unparalleled determination. One such story is of IAS Mudita Sharma, a doctor-turned-IAS officer.

IAS Mudita worked as a doctor to help patients during the pandemic after Covid-19 struck the world. The brilliant mind has secured an All India Rank (AIR)-381 in the UPSC Civil Services Exam in 2022 and is currently serving as Indian Defence Accounts Service Officer.

Mudita originally hails from the small town of Merta in Rajasthan. While her father is the principal of a government school, her mother is a housewife. Mudita has five siblings and all of them were raised with high value for education, a report in DNA India stated.

She has been good in academics since childhood and was among the toppers in the Rajasthan Class 10 Boards although she studied in a government school. For her Class 11 and 12, she continued her education at the government school.

She successfully cracked NEET and pursued a degree in MBBS from SN Medical College, Jodhpur. After completing her MBBS, she started her medical career by working in a private hospital in Jaipur. However, she knew her inner calling was to become an IAS officer.

However, inner calling compelled her to make a momentous life decision. Mid-way, she left her medical practice to start her journey towards her childhood dream of IAS. She prepared diligently and studied for hours until Covid-19 pandemic. 

Unable to bear the condition of Covid-19 patients, she left her preparations again and worked as a doctor to contribute during the crisis. She risked her own life all throughout the pandemic to help the patients, reported DNA India.

Later, she resumed her preparations and joined a coaching institute in Delhi. Her hard work paid off and she secured an AIR-381 on her first attempt to become an IAS officer.
