For a moment I feel like a celebrity as everyone wants to take selfies with me after the performance,” said Laisha.

    Over 10 years of learning she took part in many cultural activities of her academy institution. In 9th standard she participated in Dharohar Festival at Shimla. She took part in three categories of folk, classical and modern dances and her team won the 1st prize in the competition.
