Ishrat is a class VI Nanhi Kali studying at the Government Senior Secondary School in Libaspur, Delhi and lives in Bhalaswa JJ- 2 along with her parents and five siblings. Her father works as a vegetable vendor.

Earlier, Ishrat used to help her father, who was engaged in rag-picking back then. Ishrat was made part of Project Nanhi Kali and her Community Activist noticed her irregularity and lack of interest. The team convinced her family to ensure she attends class.

Ishrat won 2nd Prize in the Drawing Competition conducted at the district level in her school. Her parents are now keen on ensuring that Ishrat is provided with all the opportunities she deserves to gain a quality education.
