I had the pleasure of interacting and forming friendships with talented students from all over the world. This international community is reflected not only the student body of Heidelberg University, but also within the scientific institutions in the city itself. This level of international collaboration has been invaluable towards my professional development. My medical education has already required a significant financial investment, and without support, I would not have been able to to study at Heidelberg University.

The HAUS Scholarship has provided me with a unique opportunity to apply my research skills, zeal, and cultural knowledge of the South Asian region in a distinct and socially relevant way, equipping me to participate fully in positive change for the future. I want to sincerely thank the Heidelberg Alumni U.S. for investing in me; as a result, of your dedication and guidance I was able to bring my goals to fruition.
