" Becoming a Millennium Fellow is so exciting because I have the opportunity to share the importance of advancing the status of women around the world by first understanding the power we hold individually and then globally uniting as sisters. Through Letters of the Unapologetic Sisters (L.O.T.U.S.) which emphasizes the importance of knowledge, confidence, humility, and love, we begin to approach the forefront of human rights by forming a sisterhood in the face of adversity. Change starts from within. What sets the organization apart is not its focus on academic or financial stability alone, but its focus on mental and emotional well-being before anything else. We must build up ourselves, and we must build up our sisters in order to advance the social, political, and economic status of women. "
