Millennium Fellowship Project: Strong Women Strong Girls
SWSG tries to foster positive mentoring relationships between college aged women and local girls in 3rd-5th grades. We often (but not always) work in underprivileged communities and try to encourage the girls to follow their goals, build their confidence and empower each other through a mutual cycle.
About the Millennium Fellow
My name is Kiran Jivnani and I am a rising senior at Northeastern University with a major in Criminal Justice and minors in Law and Public Policy and International Affairs. I was born in India and moved to the beautiful island of St.Maarten when I was 2 years old. At my university, I am part of the NEU chapter of Strong Women Strong Girls. Strong Women Strong Girls encourages young women to learn about women leaders in their communities and to think about what their role in the world will be one day. I am also the current President of Alpha Phi Sigma and hope to one day go to law school and pursue a career in legal policy-making.
