" Despite coming from a variety of backgrounds and interests, Millennium Fellows share one grounding quality: all driven by the same passion for social impact whether that be through environmental policy, human rights discourse, or political activism. I am thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow for the unique opportunity to convene with my peers and other student leaders, challenging each other and oneself to do more. Leveraging our unique differences and insights, I look forward to collectively implementing tangible, meaningful, and sustainable solutions in the community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Invisible Illnesses and Disabilities Initiative
The Invisible Illnesses and Disabilities Initiative aims to increase awareness and
knowledge of invisible illnesses and
disabilities. This project consists of two
facets: 1) coordinating and leading four
awareness projects for invisible illnesses and
disabilities a year through educational
workshops, symposiums, and speaker events AND
2) create and distribute informational
pamphlets and posters monthly, highlighting a
different invisible illness/ disability each time.
Ultimately, through fostering healthy
conversation and discussion, we hope to
tackle one's experiences with illness and its
place in a larger social construct. I founded
this club with two of my peers in hopes of
transforming the stigma, culture, and lack of
dialogue in this sphere of health through
service and education, doing so while fostering partnerships with local organizations and groups with similar goals. This project aims to advance UN Sustainable Development Goal #10- Reducing Inequality and the UN Academic Impact Principle #7- Intercultural Dialogue.
