" I’m beyond thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow because in being so, I’ve been able to find refuge in others who have a similar passion as I do; to create more opportunities for a better future. I live for knowing that everything I do, whether its impact is minuscule or grand, will benefit somone who is no different than myself. "
