" My dad is a Naval officer and i have been living with him in the naval apartments. The environment there is very different, everyone helps each other and care about each other. We used to help poor people by giving them food, clothes etc. This attracted my interest in helping people from childhood. I developed an emotional attachment with those people.Whenever I used to see a hungry person, I used to think how difficult it might be for him to live in this world. When I got to know about Millennium Fellowship I was super excited as it is the perfect way for me to keep indulging in such activities, help the needy and do some greater good. This a golden opportunity for me to serve for humanity and become a part of an international community which allows me to interact with other fellows as well and do our deeds. "
