Outstanding Person with Epilepsy from India awardee, Shenaz Haveliwala on giving the disorder a tough fight.
It’s just days before she flies out to Singapore to receive the Outstanding Person with Epilepsy 2014 award, by the IBE (International Bureau of Epilepsy) for India, Shenaz Haveliwala can’t contain her excitement. Meeting delegates at the annual Asian-Oceanic Epilepsy Congress means she will be in the company of people from across the world who, like her, have battled the neurological disorder with rectitude. “I am eager to learn how they have coped with it,” says the 27-year-old, when we meet her at her Mazgaon home. “Mine has been a battle, but one that I believe, I have conquered well.”
