Deepika was born and brought up in a Christian family. Her father was working in an office and her mother was a housewife. When she was one year old (in 2001) her mother committed suicide and in 2002 her father passed away too due to Malaria. Her paternal grandfather was worried about her upbringing and future.
Meanwhile one of her relatives told them about the hostel. Deepika joined the hostel in 2009 which runs under Alpha Omega Society and was admitted in class 3. She has passed class 8 with an A grade and would like to continue her studies.
She is currently studying in class 10 at Alice Springs English Medium School. She wants to become a scientist and do research for inventing new things.
