ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2019
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2019, over 7,000 young leaders applied to join the Class of 2019 on 1,209 campuses across 135 nations. 69 campuses worldwide (just 6%) were selected to host the 1,092 Millennium Fellows. The Class of 2019 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 978,400 people worldwide this year.
''To be sure, the very vocabulary that governance SHOULD be pro-people and pro-active and corruption-free is not easy to come by, after all. But indeed, I'm humbly pround to be a Millennium Fellow of class 2019. At best, therefore, at the end of the Fellowship, I would not have only been a graduate of first-class, even world-class, leader, but also that I would have been so great an immense avater of the burgeoning pestilence of poor, or shall I say putative, practice of democracy, now on my CAMPUS and fairly later in my COUNTRY and on the GLOBE.''
Millennium Fellowship Project: Humboldth Project
Humboldth Project (HP) is a virtual platform for networking nerds within and outside of the University of Lagos. This Project essays to engage the students and the world on events that border on governance, leadership, education, politics, and so on, by bringing to bear certain social science technicalities, namely, digital humanities, semiotics, stylistics, pragmatics, and critical discourse analysis. The Project is gearing for the Millennium Fellowship Class of 2019. And consequently, I graciously hope to accomplish specific goals including:
to inform the members of the Project of the creative and innovative impacts of the Fellowship;
to ensure that no less than 40 -50% of my uploadings is based on the significant progression of my Campus Hub; and
to convince members who are not Millennium Fellows of, and win them to, the forum of Sustainable Development Goals Advocates, that is, the Millennium Fellowship.
About the Millennium Fellow
Segun Ige is a final-year student of English, Department of English, Faculty of Arts, University of Lagos, Akoka-Yaba, Lagos, Nigeria. Up to now, he is a member of the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) and also a member of VoicesAfrica. Surely, YALI has significantly contributed to his leadership skills and schooling in one way or another. Through the online courses offered by YALI, on the one hand, and the service volunteers, on the other, I have acquired very applicable 'skilled- leadership' and 'servant-leadership' principles. In short, I am a resource for community organisations; a contender for the unconscionable 'fate' of dispossessed and disenfranchised hoi polloi, thereby creating a life-transforming and long-lasting 'constitutional' human rights; and finally, an astute apostle of freedom, transparency, and equality.
