Millennium Fellowship Project: Motivating Students Through Potential Careers
I aimed to help children who don't traditionally have role models in school, to become inspired by bringing in different professionals. The children were able to learn new and interesting perspectives that I hope will allow them to better achieve in schools. By bringing in high achieving adults the children were able to see the potential they have of affecting change in the world. This program was developed particularly at children whose parents immigrated to this country.
