" I am more than excited to be a Millenium Fellow for many reasons.
First, it is for me a ticket to network with people i wouldn't come across on normal grounds.
Also, i believe i am closer to getting the opportunities i have always been banking on with regards the projects that are ahead of me.
Most importantly, i am excited to be a Millenium Fellow because of the esteem that comes with it. I greatly admire the Millenium Campus Network and feel honoured to have scaled through the application phase. "
