14 year old Suma wants to find an affordable cure for AIDS when she grows up. She stays with her mother and grandparents in a small village in India. Separated from her father when she was 8 months old, Suma and her mother were left to fend for themselves. Despite all hardships, Suma is determined, outgoing, confident and excellent in communications. “I have noticed an improvement in my confidence and I owe it to Agastya. The hands-on teaching at Agastya inspires me to learn more” Suma, Class IX, Gudupalli GHPS.
