The Class of 2018 is bold, innovative, and inclusive. Millennium Fellows' Projects are projected to positively impact the lives of over 310,000 people worldwide this year.
“I sincerely believe that it only takes one random act of kindness in order to make a difference in someone else's life. And it is through the repetition of those acts of kindness, we can make a difference in the whole world. Being a Millennium Fellow will provide me with the incomparable experience and honor of being surrounded with a support network of an amazing group of people that share the same passion and purpose of helping others and making a difference in the world as mine.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Engineering and Commerce Case Competition is the first student run international multi-disciplinary competition, where students from all around the world gather to solve real life problems and promote sustainable economic development. The aim of the competition is to break down the communication barriers between students from different backgrounds and to foster the next generation leaders through the experiential learning process of sustainable case solving. Through the 3 events that would be hosted this year, reaching the 7000 students on campus, Adham believes that his project would raise awareness regarding the importance of the multidisciplinary communication and interaction of Business, Technology Management, and Engineering in order to provide sustainable solutions for some of the problems currently happening in the world. His fellowship project is advancing the Sustainable Development Goal of ensuring equitable and inclusive quality education for all. Moreover, the project would be also advocating the United Nations Academic Impact of an equal access to higher education for all.

He is a big advocate of providing equal rights, life conditions, opportunities, and proper education for children all around the world, and that was the reason behind his involvement with UNICEF Concordia the last year.
