" I believe in the fruits and blessings of showing compassion to one another. Thus the reason that touched me to start applying in the first place. I love to work in a team, to share, to learn, to contribute and to offer support to people. I decided to read Materials Engineering because I want to touch lives and improve them. Also, I want to see myself in the future contributing tremendously to help solve most of the problems in the world. Last but not list, I am inspired by the fact that a small change can make a big difference. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: ESTABLISHMENT OF LIBRARY FOR MY COMMUNITY (SOMANYA-ADJIKPO)
My project is about helping to sustain my community by promoting education and also the cultural heritage of my community.
I taken it to work on because I realized that students roam about a lot after school and this leads to low academic performance of students in my community. There is no computer centre in the community for students to use in order to develop themselves with computer skills. From my observation the problem is more centred on the disadvantaged families and their children. Looking at the stand of the culture of my community, there is no doubt that it is its point of dying.
In view of the stated problems I decided to advocate for a library to be built for the community in order to save the situation. It is my hope that the accomplishment of project would create much impact in the youth especially so as to prepare them for future roles.
