" I am elated to be a Millenium Fellow because I finally get to make use of such a great platform to sensitize people on their contribution to the development or destruction of the environment. It is much easier to call on the government to come to our aid every time, but sensitizing people to know that they can also contribute in their own small and diverse ways to maintain life on planet earth is a move I find fulfilling. "
