It has given her the hunger and belief to keep soaring with her ultimate aim being an Olympic medal. According to Preeti, she is doing 18 to 20 hours of practice every week under the supervision of her coach. He says that my maternal uncle Deepak Niwas Hooda, the captain of the Indian Kabaddi team, is my idol and he constantly keeps motivating me. It was because of his inspiration that I left Kabaddi and chose boxing. Preeti Dahiya's father had a dream that his daughter should illuminate the name of family, society, and country by winning a gold medal in Olympics, Preeti is working hard day and night to make her dream come true. He says that his goal is to make his father's dream come true by winning the gold medal in the Olympics.

Expressing her views about the state of boxing in the country right now, Preeti said that the attitude towards boxing has changed. Initially, boxing was dominated by Delhi and Haryana. At the same time, now this game has reached every corner of the country. Many good boxers are being produced in many states. Parents have also become aware and are raising their children. Now it is being seen that even during boxing matches, the family members of the players are present there.

Expressing confidence, Preeti said that the promotion of this game will increase more in future. He further said that if seen, you will get to hear from every person that our goal is this, we want to be this. Some people want to become doctors, some people want to be engineers, some people are interested in teaching children, so they want to be teachers, some people want to be actors, while some people want to be leaders. What we mean is that man wants to be what he is interested in which he can work with dedication.
