Eksha is passionate about boxing, biking and fitness

Eksha shared that it was her father who encouraged her to take up physical fitness classes as well as biking. While she wasn’t aware of boxing classes being available, her father introduced her to them. She grew passionate about combat sports and partook in national boxing tournaments.

She trained hard to become a police officer

At 19, she landed a job with the Sikkim Police Force while completing her graduation. As the eldest daughter and sole breadwinner of the family, Eksha worked hard to secure the position. She underwent 14 months of disciplinary training before getting transferred to the State Reserve Line.

Eksha always aspired to model

After joining the police force and becoming a rider and boxer, Eksha had more to achieve. She took part in the Positude Miss Sikkim 2018 and made it to the top 10 finalists. She aspired to appear on MTV Supermodel of the Year.

Supported by her parents and peers, Eksha auditioned for the second season of the MTV show and got selected. Eksha revealed how her rigorous police training helped her face all the challenges such as physical strength on the show. She was among the top 9 contestants in the show.

Final thoughts

Like so many other upcoming young Indian women, Eksha Hangma Subba again teaches girls across India to never settle. We may see ourselves in the bounds of an occupation or a single aspiration, but we can be so much more. It is encouraging to see more such women proving the same.
