Odia Girl Proves ‘Nothing Is Impossible’

Bhubaneswar: She had a childhood dream to fly in the skies. It was indeed a big dream for a village girl coming from a middle class family. For many, it was just a fairy tale and every day dreams of a little girl. But she was confident, determined and stuck to her goal till she achieved what was once seen as impossible by many.

Shelbi Mishra was born in Padampur village of Keonjhar district. As her father Bipin Mishra is in Navy, she used to listen to stories about aircraft and fighter planes, and gradually a dream to become a pilot took birth in her.
Having done her graduation in Aviation from Mumbai, she had to move to Texas for a flying course. It was a difficult time for the family as it was not easy to afford her aviation studies abroad. But neither the family nor Shelbi ever broke down.

At the age of 18 she became a pilot and today she is the youngest pilot of the State and the only female to be recruited as a commercial pilot by AirAsia.
