Sirisha hails from a remote village under Kalimela block in tribal-dominated Malkangiri district.
The young is an inspiration for many as she took up outdoor sports to help her mother who works as a cook in a primary school at her native place.
As of now, the 16-year-old has played in 12 states representing her state. She had participated in the national camp and aspires to don Indian cap and make her village, state and country proud.
