Shreya was born into a Christian family. She has three sisters. The village where she was raised is a very small village with limited resources. Shreya's father worked to support the family, however he abandoned the family. This left Shreya's mother, who had raised the girls and was a housewife, to figure out how to sustain the family. She found work in the fields as daily laborer but even so, her earnings are not sufficient to fulfill even the basic needs of her four girls. It is not uncommon for the family to not have any food to eat. Shreya's mother has therefore requested admittance for Shreya and her sister Anshika into Mercy Homes.
Shreya's favorite color is yellow and she would like to become a police officer in the future.
