    • Today, after struggling for 6 years, Somaraj has finally made his dream of becoming a doctor a reality. He graduated with a degree in medicine from AIMST University, and he is grateful to those who had helped him.

    • “The financial help went into paying for my initial varsity fees,” said the 24-year-old who is now looking forward to his housemanship. “My father has since then managed to come up with the money for me to pursue my degree,” said Somaraj.
  • A former student of Penang Free School, Somraj, whose father is an ambulance driver, also wishes to pay it forward, reported The Star. He plans to organise medical camps in the near future.
    • “And, when I am financially stable, I’ll donate towards the education of bright, underprivileged students,” he added.

      Somaraj hopes to become a doctor in a private hospital here, where his father M. Sangkaran still works as an ambulance driver. 
  • Somaraj's parents are overjoyed with his success and like their son, are thankful to all those who had helped him.
