" I'm excited about being a Millennium Fellow because I will be involved in not only educating my college campus on social injustices but also my community. In my college career, so far, I have not been given much opportunity to work in large groups or been involved in planning events. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The 1742 Model: A Comprehensive Program for Education and Action on The Sustainable Development Goals in the Lehigh Valley
I am the member of the LGBTQ+ Sub-Committee, for this project and it was our job to create programming and events for the community, starting with Moravian College, to provide awareness to LGBTQ+ inequalities through educational events throughout the year. The end goal is to provide a sustainable educational platform for LGBTQ+ inequality awareness not only for Moravian but throughout the Lehigh Valley. As part of our educational program we will be offering a 3 session seminar, for those who are willing to sign up, these programs will dive into the world inequalities among the LGBTQ+ Community. Our 3 sessions are "LGBTQ+ 101&PA Policy", "I'm not an Ally, I'm an Accomplice", and "The importance of being Politically Queer"
About the Millennium Fellow
I am going into my senior year majoring in Studio Art, with a focus in painting and photography, and a minor in Peace and Justice Studies. This year I will be working on an Honors Project based off of two SOAR (Student Opportunities for Academic Research) projects that I have been working on the past two summers. I will be investigating how art is used as a "weapon" for social change.
