“The Millennium Fellowship is an incredibly great platform to have opportunities to be around great leaders and to be supported in becoming a leader. Such an opportunity comes with great responsibilities and the greatest of all is to work on something that is greater than myself.
Architecture has given me a deeper understanding of the world and my place in it. As I justify my privilege of accessing modern education;particularly architecture, my greatest desire is to solve some of the world's biggest challenges, to uplift my community and restore their dignity by creating affordable, sustainable housing solutions.”
