What is your future goal?

I want to turn my academic and creative skills into action. So, I want to contribute to medical science community with my scientific skills.

 

What does this scholarship mean to you?

I am very thankful to Boro for laying a path without financial burden in front of me to pursue my dreams. Now without deviating my path, I can continue my journey to fund my projects and education. I had been thinking about launching “Sakchyam” program but due to limited funding I had a lot of obstacles, but now I can also allocate some fund towards its implementation which will help many special need people to be once again interactive.
