" I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it has given me the incentive of taking action in making a positive difference in this world. It propels me to pursue my passions with a purpose and a chance to engage with the local community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Re-create
Re-create tackles SDG's 12 and 13 in reducing plastic consumption and climate change through reducing, reusing, recycling and recreating simple house hold products through a series of short videos and workshops.
I want to show people that they can make a difference in small ways, thus I wanted to make these videos and ingredients within these videos to be accessible and cost-effective.
