Not all of us possess the dedication to fulfil our childhood dreams of becoming a doctor or pilot but this woman from Pathankot, India, has become the live example for us.

Meet Anny Divya, 30, who has been recently appointed as the commander of Boeing 777 aircraft. She is the world's youngest woman commander of Boeing 777. 

Anny said, "Since my childhood, I wanted to be a pilot. Other children used to make fun of me for this. Kids, at that time, were pushed to pursue engineering or become a doctor but not a pilot." 

Born in family of an army officer, Anny's journey to the top has not been easy but she had a strong support from her parents for which she is thankful today. Hailing from a modest background, Anny's father took a loan to ensure her training. Later, she received a scholarship through hard work.

But the language posed a major struggle.

Anny said, "The cultural change from a small town to a big city was overwhelming for me. I had difficulty adjusting and speaking English. People used to mock me for my poor English and that hurt me a lot. At times, I had even thought of going back. However, backed with my parents' support, I worked hard enough to win a scholarship." 

Anny completed her training by the time she was 19.
