" I am so excited to be a Millennium fellow because of the platform it provides to develop my leadership skills and also to learn from other people. I would be able to interact with like-minded fellows and be able to network. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Be Aware!
Be Aware is a Mental Health Awareness project that is aimed at sensitizing people within the campus community of the sprouting issue of mental health. It basically involves sessions whereby people talk openly about the reality of mental health in Kenya and in our campus. We talk and sensitize people of its existence and offer platforms where people can openly share about their experiences. Through sharing, we are able to better understand the issue and devise tangible mechanisms of how to deal with it. So far, there have been several session s and a considerable number of students have been able to attend. Though the number of females coming out are more than the males, we are optimistic that more male students would be open to sharing.
About the Millennium Fellow
Annette Anyango is a law student at Kenyatta University in Kenya. She is passionate about positively impacting the society and helping out in whatever small way she can. She is of the idea that we should no longer play blame games because everyone has the power to positively change the society in whatever small way they can. Rather, the question should be, what are you doing as a person?
