" Being a Millennium Fellow will be a great testament to my leadership capabilities and my ability to be a changemaker. I am really passionate about human rights and want to marry it with my passion for public speaking. I strongly believe our voice is the most powerful tool to advocate for change and if we learn how to use it, then the world will be our audience. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: MUNtutor
MUNtutor offers public speaking, debating and Model UN workshops mainly catered to empower highschool students.
The culture of Model UN is one that fosters diplomacy, professionalism, public speaking, debating and leadership. MUNtutor hopes to spread this culture and enable students to kickstart their journey towards global citizenship. At MUNtutor, students will explore the fascinating world of public speaking and the importance of participating in debate and discourse.
During the course of the fellowship, the workshops will take place online. These will be interactive sessions ranging from 1-2 hours. They hope to impact at least 300 highschool students through their online workshops by the end of the fellowship. To reach out to a wider audience, they plan to increase their online presence through social media.
