Irmim Shamim becomes first Gujjar woman to clear MBBS AIIMS
Rajouri (Jammu and Kashmir): Irmim Shamim became the first Gujjar woman in Jammu and Kashmir’s Rajouri district to qualify for the medical studies at the All- India Institute of Medical Sciences after she cleared the MBBS AIIMS entrance exam in June. Shamim, who hails from Dhanore village, worked hard beating all adversaries to make it to the institute. She had to walk a distance of 10 kilometres on foot every day to go to school as there was no good school near the village. Struggling with financial woes, Shamim took all the challenges coming on her way head-on.”Everyone has some problem in their life. You have to fight the challenges and success will definitely come to you,” she said. Speaking to ANI, Shamim’s uncle Liaqat Choudhary expressed happiness on her success and said that girls are the hope of the region.
