About the Millennium Fellow
Born and Raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, Grace's focus was always on sustainability when the people around her deemed it not an important issue. Now an undergrad studying Environmental Management and Sustainability major with minors in Urban Studies and Fine Arts at the University of Pennsylvania, she is set on changing people's mindsets at home and abroad. She has studied on three different continents and hopes that this exposure will help her to asses the approaches to SDG through a more diverse cultural lens.
