Sweden D’Souza, Mumbai's first paediatric heart transplant patient scored 63.38 per cent in HSC exam. She underwent the heart transplant surgery in January 2016 after she was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy.
“It is a moment of pride for us. She was not able to attend school for more than eight months because of her heart disease and transplant. But with her dedication and hard work, she scored much more than our expectation,” said Anthony, Sweden’s father.
Sweden has already decided to pursue Bachelor of Management Studies (BMS).“I have decided to pursue BMS. My aim is to start working at the earliest and help my parents financially,” said Sweden.
It took her three months to step outside the 10x 6 feet air-conditioned room that was created in their one room kitchen flat in Vikhroli.
