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’m excited to be a Millennium fellow because I want to bring awareness about the disease to alter the minds of the younger generation to eat, think, and share the knowledge to the later generations. I work for the upcoming generations because I want to stir the mindset away from irrelevant conversations to informal conversations and discussions the world needs to here”
Millennium Fellowship Project
The Jarvis Diabetes Awareness Campaign uses Diabetes Education as a building-block to healthier communities by raising consciousness to prevent chronic disease and ensure predisposed demographic groups know the risk factors and warning signs. Working together in the community enables timely diagnoses and access to professional care by paying closer attention to prevention and consistently making small behavioral changes that have a big impact, like more nutritious food choices or glycemic trade-offs for junk food. Millennium Fellows at Jarvis Christian College hope to accomplish the measurable goal of reaching 1,000 to 2,000 East Texas youth ages 15 to 22.
About the Millennium Fellow
Coming from a place where opportunities are limited and chances are never giving but earned, Bryson saw through those stereotypes and began his journey as being a scholar and stepping outside his comfort zone. Seeing how society treats people of his color gave him a deep burning desire to stand up for a change within his community. For Bryson, making himself feel uncomfortable in every way was the plan because he sees this as the first step of gaining everything he worked for. Not talking about his struggle but the struggle of his people is what gives him the drive to stepping outside his comfort zone.
