" I want to be a Millennium Fellow to be a part of a community of people that advocates for a constantly-improving world. As a Millennium Fellow, I will not just strive to reach certain goals; rather I will strive to surpass these goals. If we eliminate poverty, people will have more resources to focus on education, eradicating disease, and helping one another. We should all care about these issues. The planet belongs to all of us, and we all share the same desires, in one form or another. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Hall Council
This year, Hall Council Project involved eliminating hunger in Boston, one mouth at a time. When it comes to volunteering, Hall Council got Northeastern students involved through fun and engaging activities all over campus, working to help the Boston community. This includes raising money for Boston’s hungry through donations and collection drives, and also serving at Harvard’s Homeless Shelter as well as Boston Food Bank.
