She Comes From A Middle Class Family…

She hails from a middle class family, where her dad is a retired army soldier, who was settled in Vijaywada. She did her schooling from the Kendriya Vidyalaya in Vijaywada. Being a kid of a soldier, she and her family members kept moving from city to city, based on her dad's posting.

She Was An Average Student…

Anny and her siblings have moved and studied in schools all over the country. She added, "My mother helped us till she could with her limited education - Class 4 or so - and then she left us to our own devices. No pressure was ever put on us so, sometimes we did well and sometimes we didn't."

Her Turning Point Of Life…

After she completed her 12th, she got through the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi (IGRUA), the flying school in Uttar Pradesh. Since the fees was high, her family had to take a loan for her education. She had difficulty adjusting and speaking in English. She was often mocked by people for her poor English, yet Anny was determined to make it big and she worked hard enough to win a scholarship!

She Was Just 19 Years Of Age When...

As she turned 19, Anny Divya joined the Air India firm after completing her training and she was sent to Spain for further training. She got a chance to fly the Boeing 737. Ever since then, there has been no looking back for her. She later was sent to London for further training.
