I am from Manipur and I completed my class 12 from a Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalaya. 

My parents are farmers and growing up in a region with limited educational resources, pursuing a career in medicine seemed like an unattainable dream. However, thanks to the TATA AIG-Avanti Fellows Scholarship program, I have been able to overcome financial barriers and take significant strides towards achieving my goals. I am very much grateful that through this scholarship, my passion to serve people will become a reality. This scholarship has not only changed my life but has also empowered me to be a catalyst for change in my community.
