" One of the big reasons I decided to apply to the Millennium Fellowship was the opportunity to meet and learn from other like-minded people. I want to see the kind of projects that people around the world are working on. I want to hear from them why they’re motivated to do the things that they do. From inspiration to new perspective this level of networking and support feels game changing. And I love that. "

The projects main purpose was to provide the information around the multitude of alternate financial solutions for small business owners and entrepreneurs in underprivileged and underserved areas that stem from a series of governmental loan programs in Florida that seem to go severely under used.
About the Millennium Fellow
Hi, I’m Colin. I’m from St. Augustine, Florida and am currently starting my junior year at Rollins College. I am majoring in International relations with minors in mathematics and economics. Like most people entering college, I came in with little understanding of what I wanted to do with my life. However with the help of some life-changing instructors and trips I have been able to kindle a passion for economic development and social justice.
