" I am excited to be a Millenium fellow because it provides a platform for transforming the society around and educating the youth. Furthermore, it will enable other young people to take on leadership roles to create the society we want and we would thrive in. Thus creating a bright and vibrant world for the generations to come.
The youth are the future. It is our duty to ensure we enlighten them. Furthermore, we should show that the sky is not the limit. "
