Son of a marketing manager, Priya decided to become a doctor when he was in class XII, seeing the ‘healing power’ of doctors, and after realising that there was no doctor in his family. “There were occasions when I was taken to hospitals for minor ailments like headache or stomach pain. I was amazed at the healing power of doctors. I wondered whether I could become one. Since I was always a school topper, everyone said I could easily clear NEET, if I give it a try. Hence, I got enrolled for coaching at Aakash when I was in class VIII,” Priya recalls, while thanking his parents for believing in him.
