" I think that one of the most important challenges that all communities face today is sustainability. Because there is so many types of sustainability, solutions look different in each community. As a Millennium Fellow, I get to be at the forefront of sustainable development on my campus and in my city, rewarding work that fuels my aspirations. For this reason, I am excited to work with the RCE Youth Network this upcoming fall and beyond. "
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.

I am a rising sophomore here at Georgia Tech. I recently switched into my Computer Science major and I'm looking to declare my sustainable cities minor. Although I am a talented computer scientist, my passions truly lie with sustainability and city development. For this reason, I am thrilled to join the Millennium Fellows in working towards improving my campus and city.
