" Millennium Fellowship provides me with an opportunity to realize my dream of maximizing the role of youth in social dynamics by informing and mobilizing them. I have been on the receiving end for 20 years of my life and now I want to serve my community and by being a part of this global community of change makers, I can play my constructive role more efficiently.
