" Being a Millennium Fellow gives me this excellent opportunity to empower young adults who have the potential to transform the economy and lifestyle of their respective communities. Having closely witnessed the consequences of over-saturated job market, I am eager to help more people opt for unconventional career paths that give them financial freedom, sustainability, work-life balance, and flexibility. Instead of looking for a dream job, why not make one for yourself and for many others like you? "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Recycled Road
This is a research project relevant to my discipline - chemical engineering. The idea is to process solid plastic waste to make bitumen that may be used for building transport infrastructure.
Till now, we have completed the literature study and also applied for multiple funding sources and competitions from where may get sponsorship. The experimentation is an ongoing part of this project.
We expect to file utility patent for this project soon.
