" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow and meet more people who share my passion for working on making positive change locally and around the globe. I think that the platform of coming together to create change that the Millennium Fellowship provides is truly unique, and I am eager to discuss the projects that my peers are working on so that I can discuss with and learn from them. The only way to create large scale change is for a group of driven and similarly goal oriented individuals to put their minds together to work on a solution, and I believe that the Millennium Fellowship provides a space for students to do just that, and I am thrilled to be a part of such a group.

About the Millennium Fellow
I am a rising junior at Brandeis University where I will double major in Anthropology and International and Global Studies. Before attending Brandeis in the winter of 2017, I spent two months living in northern India where I taught English to buddhist monks. I love travel, learning new things, and spending time with my family and friends, and I am so excited to be a part of this wonderful group!
