Millennium Fellowship Project: Securing the Child's Smile
Securing the Child's Smile is a project founded as a commitment to uplifting underprivileged youth by providing opportunities for excelling holistically: in mind, body, and spirit - for the benefit of others. Our work in this 2018-2019 year will be largely dedicated to helping our students identify and connect their own interests as instruments that will help them to serve other people.
About the Millennium Fellow
I am Askhari Little, a native of historic Selma, Alabama. I am a Senior, Early Childhood Education Major and International Studies Minor. I am very involved in the spheres of education and global civic engagement as a member of Spelman's Model United Nations Team, Undergraduate Teaching Assistant at both a low income school, M. Agnes Jones Elementary and a private institution, Atlanta International School, and teaching English abroad in Ecuador. As founder of the "Securing the Child's Smile" project, I have been introduced to the power of education, equitable (and inequitable) exposure to resources, and global awareness. In continuing my understanding and expanding my impact, I aspire to become a Millennium Fellow by virtue of the idea that I will gain insightful knowledge/training and share valuable connections with extraordinary global leaders who too - are committed to justice, human rights, and uplifting the 17 sustainable development goals.
