They always support her in her success as well as failures and help her in making the right choices and having a balanced life. They also said that no one in this world is perfect and has many things to learn at every age and they will ensure her to stay grounded even after all the fame and recognition we will get.
For her parents, every moment they have spent with her is indeed a priceless memory. But some of the most memorable ones are:
When she used to enact as a teacher and teach her mother with love and compassion at a very young age of 2 years. She was extremely excited on her first day at Montessori when was 2 years and 4 months.

Sana is also an amazing cook and sometimes prepares dinner for her parents after they get back from the office. Her mother is diabetic and she particularly takes care of her diet. She is very caring towards animals too. She once saw a wounded dog on the road, she asked her parents to stop the car and got him the medicines, applied them on his wound, and only boarded the car after ensuring that the dog was able to walk.
This was all about Sana. The team of The Child Prodigy wishes her all the best for her future endeavors.
