I worked hard and lose weight from 63 kg to 60 kg. I had a lot of problems. For five to six months, I could not train properly. My Haemoglobin had dropped. It was a difficult period for me. But a year on, I am feeling fine and have no fitness issues.”

Jaismine developed an interest in boxing after the historic win of the Indian boxers Vijender Singh and Mary Kom at the London Olympics in 2012. During an interview, while talking about it, she said,
As I am from Bhiwani, I always heard stories about Vijender Singh and then there was Mary Kom’s medal. Before that, because my uncles were into boxing, I had watched video clips of them in bouts. There was so much boxing talk around me when I was growing up. I guess I had to become a boxer only.”
- While she was studying in class 10, she told her mother for the first time that she had an interest in boxing. Her mother then said that she would ask her paternal uncles (boxers) regarding it. During an interview, when her uncle Sandeep was asked about it, he said,
I asked Jaismine if she was serious about boxing. She was very shy, but on that day she sounded determined. I told her and her mother that I would get her into boxing.”
- In an interview, Jaismine shared that she had to convince her grandfather to allow her to make a career in boxing. Her grandfather, Chandraban, who is an army man and a wrestler gave her permission, and then her uncle started her training in boxing.
