He also told Mahi that she has a good voice and she can be a good singer one day. The result of her hard work for youth festival came out to be very positive, which rewarded her with another gold medal. After this, she started official music training from her coach “Rami”, during which she learned many other singing styles like classical, Gazal/Geet and the very difficult, Punjabi Folk singing.
Pursuing her studies in Engineering because her mother wanted one of her child to do something other than singing, as both her siblings left their studies for music, but she didn’t want to be another personality in the same line, that’s why she continued her study as bachelor of technology from Malout Institute of Management and Information Technology, Malout (Also known as MIMIT, Malout).

When asked about the difference between old music and today’s music according to her, to this, Mahi Dhaliwal gave very honest answer by saying that previously the songs had many different concepts but for today’s generation it is just opposite, everyone wants to listen to songs on beats, similar touch just like the previous release and rhythm. there is nothing called as the melody in the songs that are been released every single day in the industry. That is why there are almost no songs that one can say will remain till long or any of them will be remembered for old songs. This is the reason she chose a song for herself that has a different concept, melody, and remembrance in composition.
