" Intercultural awareness and collaboration fuel my work in and out of the classroom. Throughout my college education, I’ve been fortunate enough to learn from and work with individuals who believe in the importance of a global perspective. I’ve dedicated my time to projects that encourage students to think beyond their own cultural and educational experiences and embrace the diversity within their classroom, workplace, and community. I am incredibly honored to be a Millennium Fellow because I get to join, and learn from, a multinational network of accomplished social impact leaders. "
