" I’m deeply honored to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because when you have a dream of your own that you can't achieve without the help of a lot of people, you'll need leadership skills to get them with you. MCN gives me an opportunity to make a greater impact under the sustainable development goals, and form a global network with like-minded peers and extraordinary leaders. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Cyber Security Club
The Cyber Security Club is a student-run organization at Effat University, College of Engineering. Members of the club are currently pursuing studies in computer science, computer and electrical engineering, and information systems.
The club's main purpose is to provide students who are interested in Cyber Security with the resources needed to advance their computer security skills. The club achieves this mission by organizing workshops, meeting and recruitment events to encourage and invite more females to consider a career in Cyber Security. Our focus is only towards women since women are the minority in this field, and that's why we choose to advance SDG 5 through our project.
About the Millennium Fellow
I’m driven by my passion in technology and Cyber Security with an obsession to make a positive impact in my community. I believe passionately in women empowerment, and my vision is to strengthen the Cyber Security workforce with optimized, diverse females because we observe risks in a different way. It's why I founded the Cyber Security club right after I got accepted in my university to create the biggest students movement and a community that stands behind one mission, to connect, protect, and empower future female Cyber Security professionals.
