" I have always felt the need to help and make a positive effect on people's lives on a wider range, therefore with eagerness I am waiting to grasp this opportunity of public service and self development. I would like to invest my years, especially university years, in working or improving myself in different fields as well as being of use to others and becoming a positively active person in society.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Students Helping Students
This project consists of students from university or high school that volunteer in their free time to tutor students who have learning difficulties, didn’t afford proper education before, or came from areas where there is war. The project further expands to contain not only tutoring for basic educational classes such as sciences and literature but also arts, crafts, technology, and programming; therefore this project is based on students helping other students expand their knowledge, education, and talents.
First, we will spread the project in our university, then we will search for different schools to find children who have difficulties and need tutoring as well as those outside schools. Our success can be measured based on the number of students or children being helped, and most importantly on the progress and the educational improvement and the knowledge gained by those students and children during these months.
