She shares her own words about the FIENS Clack Fellowship: “The scholarship has helped me focus on my activities entirely. You have contributed massively as a pioneer to my neurosurgical and personal education. So, I plan on giving back to society what has been offered to me. Once more, I express my most profound appreciation.”
