" In my opinion, there is nothing more essential today than to be globally-minded and able to collaborate with people from diverse backgrounds. The Millennium Fellowship shares these important values and creates an environment in which positive change can truly be enacted. I am so excited to meet and engage with other Millennium Fellows, hone my leadership skills, be challenged, learn, and give back. "
