Furman University | South Carolina, United States | Advancing SDG 1 & UNAI 1
" I am beyond excited to be a Millennium Fellow, as I have always wanted to help people in a bigger way, and this is the perfect opportunity for me to do so! I have a strong passion for helping those experiencing homelessness and drive for creating a lasting impact on a community, and the Millennium Fellowship has granted me the chance to change the world in a unique and profound way. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Poverty Awareness week (Care Cards)
I planned to educate the furman community on ways we could decrease poverty and inform the students on ways they could more involved on campus and within the community. I would do this by hosting food drives, bringing in speakers, and having a poverty awareness week on campus. The care cards were going to be a way to give back to the community by collecting information from local organizations to provide info for homeless folks to know where they can receive help and resources.
