" I strongly believe in Benjamin Franklin’s saying that “An investment in knowledge pays the best interest”. Nowadays, the process of learning itself is becoming increasingly social and creative offering those who benefit from it the perspective to identify issues beyond their personal horizon and the means to act accordingly. The Millennium Fellowship follows this trend very closely. For me, becoming a Fellow means I will get to continue on my college campus the kind of work I used to do in my native country. I am confident that this process will help me better define my emerging identities of Penn student and freshly settled Philadelphian, heavy labels that imply many societal responsibilities. "
