" There's nothing more exciting and promising than a group of people who have come together just for the purpose of supporting each other. That's why I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow-- because I believe that when you connect with those around you, everyone benefits. I'm looking forward to being inspired by the other Fellows, and to offering my support to as many people as possible. "

This semester, I served both as a mentor and as the Finance Coordinator for the Northeastern chapter. In this role, I oversaw and managed the budget and related expenses, as well as created and distributed apparel for the chapter.
