Deree The American College of Greece | Athens, Greece | Advancing SDG 5 & UNAI 9
" I am excited to become a Millennium Fellow because it is my chance establish meaningful connections with students in my university as well as the wider Greek community in the context of Sustainable Development Goals. Additionally, I am excited to learn from diverse people who have different perspectives from me. I also look forward to creating a foundation for further action in the future. There have not been many such chances to do so in Greece and I believe that this will prove a fruitful opportunity that will pave the path for many other Greek educational institutions to take part in the Millennium Fellowship. "
