UNITED NATIONS ACADEMIC IMPACT AND MCN PROUDLY PRESENT KAYLA HERR, A MILLENNIUM FELLOW FOR THE CLASS OF 2018.
Moravian College | Pennsylvania, United States | Advancing SDG 11 & UNAI 9
" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because the UNAI and MCN fellowship is an opportunity for growth, training, and networking that validates my role as an advocate for the necessary policies and infrastructures that address affordable housing. Sustainable solutions to the housing dilemma such as housing crisis intervention, legal lease assist programs, and home-based care management, can only be effective if championed by our community. This Fellowship will empower my voice with the credibility to advocate for housing equity in our community, and once perfected, perhaps expand onto the global stage. "
