“I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow as it will allow me to connect and learn from other individuals and experts aimed at creating change in their communities and the world at large. I believe that this will provide exposure to other people's ways of thinking, at different scales. Other than that, it excites me to network with people who are committed towards achieving change and learn a thing or two from them.”

Millennium Fellowship Project: Mental health and education forums

The project aims to provide a platform for students in my community to air out the challenges they face in their day to day lives and demystify some of the notions we have about mental health such as attributing it to witchcraft, curb drug abuse by creating information about its effects and provide access to professional. Paired with this are peer teaching and talent-based events that will allow the youth to connect to mentors and open up their view to what careers are accessible to them.

What I hope to accomplish in this time is reach at least 500 students between the ages of eleven to fourteen, who are at the most risk. This will be done through at least eight peer teaching sessions held in schools and at least 3 forums and events outside the classroom, involving mentors and experts.
