" I am honored to be a Millennium Fellow because I want to contribute to a community that works in harmony to provide solutions to global challenges. As an international student from India, I have noticed the discrepancy in the education systems of two huge global economies. Grateful to be a part of this initiative, I want to make a difference by expanding the boundaries of a narrow and limited learning experience. In today’s world, education is not treated like a luxury but a necessity, and we set out to make that a reality. I am eager to challenge the common notions of literacy and take it to the next level.

About the Millennium Fellow
I am a rising junior at University of California Davis, where I am pursuing Managerial Economics. I am passionate about giving back to the community through practical learning and opportunity to experience an educational environment. Following this passion, I founded Aggie Model Business Club which is the first business simulation club on campus giving prominent learning experience. I also became a part of the phenomenal team behind the Global Education for All Initiative and hope to achieve it with people who share my passion.
