United Nations Academic Impact and MCN are proud to partner on the Millennium Fellowship.

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 am excited to be a part of a community of individuals who though are differentiated in their backgrounds and focuses have managed to come together with one common goal in mind: to help mankind. In parallel to this, I find that in being a MF, I am finally able to relinquish the role of silent bystander and instead, take an active stance in ensuring that the MDGs come to fruition and thereby, a better future to hope for.”

Adding to the 30k words that already have for the manuscript and refining the detail included and improving overall quality. Bringing the book closer to the publication faze and beginning marketing and advertising faze through trying to spread the word about the project and what the book hopes to do as an initiating point.
Faye Al Saadoon was originally born in Canada but grew up all her life in Jordan to a Middle Eastern mother and a Swedish father. It was having this foundation growing up that truly influenced the way she looked at the world and in large, played a major role in where she is today; a senior at Georgetown University's School of Foreign Service. With multiple interests growing up, her focuses have spanned between finance and human rights, with an arching interest in innovation as a means of pushing these interests and the world forward.
