The support they are given by the Millennium Fellowship through training, connecting them to opportunities that have made them feel responsible and understanding what they can do to bring a solution to a social challenge and serving their communities this gives me confidence I will make a change that will contribute to the health and the knowledge of wellbeing in a community that is facing such problem that I want to solve as well with the potential within me to become a great leader "
