" You must be the change you want to see in the world, Gandhi once said. I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because as a young individual you think that you could never make a difference in the world, however, every individual big and small has the power within themselves to bring about great change in the world. Now with this fellowship, I have the amazing opportunity to make that change. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The 1742 Model: A Comprehensive Program for Education and Action on The Sustainable Development Goals in the Lehigh Valley
The 1742 Model is one program with four separate branches with varying specific objectives. These four branches include: LGBTQ+ Outreach, Sustainability Education, Housing Insecurity, and Food Reclamation. As a campus director, I oversaw all of these committee, however as an Education Major I particularly focused my efforts on the Education Committee.
