ABOUT THE MILLENNIUM FELLOWSHIP - CLASS OF 2018
United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship. In the three months the application was open in 2018, students applied to join the Class of 2018 on 285 campuses across 57 nations. 30 campuses worldwide (just 11%) were selected to host the 530 Millennium Fellows in the global pilot this year.
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 believe the first step towards making a change is to recognize the problem. I am thrilled to be Millennium Fellow to raise awareness on the motivation, or the background story, of the establishment of UN SDG and how students can make impacts on individual level themselves. Additionally, within the unique education environment of science and technology institution, I hope to connect science-oriented students with industry experts to educate them on the technology that goes behind the energy-efficient innovations and motivate them to become next generation scientists and problem solvers using their science background.
My journey until now has allowed me to learn the importance of communication, inclusive leadership, humility, and empathy as well as deepening scientific knowledge in energy. My innate attraction to make a great impact on the humanity and scientific interest in energy and sustainability, equipped with perseverance and hard work, drives me to keep working.”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Energy Efficiency & Sustainability 101 aims to promote education on science and technology behind leading sustainable solutions in the world. The project will also facilitate industry collaboration to educate students on practical solutions for energy efficiency and sustainability. The project’s goal is to have attendance of three hundred people on education sessions (either poster/ presentation) and to contact three local businesses that are in sustainable technology domain to discuss invited talks or installation of their devices on campus.
About the Millennium Fellow
As a girl born in a small peninsula in Asia, Anna was always hoping to see the wider world. With such strong attraction, she courageously stepped on a flight for the first time to the United States. Traveling all alone at the age of fourteen, she had one strong goal in her mind: She wants to see the big world and make a positive impact in it. Since that first flight, her role model has been former U.N. Secretary of General Ban Ki-Moon whose journey from the same small country seemed aligned with her own.
