" I am proud to be a Millennium Fellow because it is my duty as an African youth to challenge the misconceptions and injustice surrounding sexual violence. To be daring and insightful to understand the fears of the oppressed; use this platform to advocate for sexually abused victims and to create awareness on sexual assault. As an aspiring Neuropsychologist, I know the effects sexual abuse has on mental health and I wish to help others.I believe with MCN impact, I would provide the platform for these victims to tell their stories and fight against this harsh reality in Africa and beyond. "
