“I believe that being part of the Millennium Fellowship is a very important step in my life, and it is the means to be able to achieve my dreams and thus be able to help many others to achieve theirs.
Being part of this project has made me much more aware of social problems, so I am very concerned about how to solve them, and this platform is the key point to reach all possible people.”
