“Being a minority woman myself, I have always wanted to ensure that the younger generations have the support that many of us have lacked and I am excited to be able to do just that with the help of this fellowship.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Education for All

Education for All was created to improve the quality of education and support given to minority students in primary education. Our goal is to provide minority girls with the support they need to have them understand that college is not only a big accomplishment, but it is a goal they can reach. My personal goal is to know that minority girls can become the women of the future and lead a successful career that will begin to close the pay gap and the inequality in the workforce.

About the Millennium Fellow

“I am excited to be a Millenium Fellow because it will be a great opportunity to help others out, which is what the world needs more of these days. I am looking forward to meeting new people and contributing to their projects as well.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Safe Haven

Project Safe Haven aims to provide our community kids safety and to teach them about safety in our communities so that we can see a decrease in violence that involves our children. I wish to host events where kids can go to after school and have a great time, I want these events to make the kids feel better after having a bad day, and keep them out of doing things that may lead them to trouble. I aspire to be one of their role models and would love for them to seek for me for advice and friendship.
