Georgia Institute of Technology | Georgia, United States | Advancing SDG 17 & UNAI 9
" I first learned of the SDGs in a freshman seminar class. Having just started my career at Ga Tech, and seeing all the amazing things students were doing with their studies, I was both overwhelmed and lost as to what to do with my future. Once I researched the goals a little more, I became excited and optimistic not only for our planet but also for myself, because I had found a purpose and drive to motivate me in my studies. I am very excited to be a Millenium Fellow because not only will I learn more about the SDGs and the amazing work other students are doing, but I will also be able to have space where I can use what I've learned and apply it to my campus community.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Regional Center of Expertise Greater Atlanta Youth Network
For our project, we wanted to improve the communication between the different schools involved in the RCE Youth Network. In practical terms for this semester, we made a website, developed different forms of social media to improve marketing for the network, and planned 3 events to engage all the other campuses in the RCE Youth Network of Greater Atlanta. In broader terms, we aimed to create a new regional model for collective impact, by harnessing university and college resources for community benefit – and in the process, better preparing our students to be sustainable development changemakers, in Greater Atlanta and beyond.
