MBBS, Madras Medical College, Chennai -Tamilnadu, India
Pictured above is Vijay Arumugam, a final year student at Madras Medical College. Vijay is a very intelligent student, earning excellent grades consistently throughout school. Namely, he got 494 marks in 10th grade and 1187 marks in the 12th grade. However, his road to success has not been an easy one. Coming from a low-income family, Vijay has had to depend on the Mugavari foundation to help fund his education.
Vijay is originally from the village Alamarathupatti, where his parents are farmers. Because of this, his parents could not afford to pay for his higher education. However, a determined student, Vijay wishes to change his future as well as others, pledging that once he becomes a physician, he will help students in rural areas who wish to continue their education.
