" I think we as a people can do more to help each other than we think. Tackling the worlds issues can feel daunting and impossible at times, and it's easy to give up and just focus on your own issues, but to me being a Millennium Fellow is all about stepping outside of myself and taking that leap to do what I can for those whose suffering is far greater than mine. I've been extremely fortunate in my life circumstances, so in my opinion, it's the least I can do to support my fellow human beings not just in my local community but around the world. As a Millennium Fellow, I'm excited to learn even more effective ways of tackling these issues, as well as gaining the confidence and inspiration to continue my efforts for years and years to come. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Feed My Starving Children Community Engagement
The Impact of Feeding Starving Children project focuses on generating a global impact by taking part in the millennium fellowship program and volunteering weekly at a local "Feed My Starving Children" facility. By building a strong local community of driven, passionate students and working together collaboratively, we will collectively pack enough boxes of food to feed over 500 children for an entire year.
