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 first learned of the SDGs in a freshman seminar class. Having just started my career at Ga Tech, and seeing all the amazing things students were doing with their studies, I was both overwhelmed and lost as to what to do with my future. Once I researched the goals a little more, I became excited and optimistic not only for our planet but also for myself, because I had found a purpose and drive to motivate me in my studies. I am very excited to be a Millennium Fellow because not only will I learn more about the SDGs and the amazing work other students are doing, but I will also be able to have space where I can use what I've learned and apply it to my campus community.
