" I am elated to be a Millennium Fellow because change comes from within. I would love to be the change I want to see. I am passionate about Education because I have seen it as a key to unlock a lot of opportunities that make life an amazing and interesting journey. I am grateful for this platform as it will enable me to reach many and create a voice for those who lack the same opportunities. I believe Education is an equaliser and being a MF will assist in providing quality education for all. "
