" Growing up in a diverse, low-income city has motivated me to work hard and give back to the community and ones alike in the future. I'm looking forward to collaborating with others and developing the skills as a Millennium Fellow so that I can not only decrease health disparities, but also promote health and wellbeing among those that are disproportionately impacted. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Active Minds
This project aims to promote mental health education and management as well as decrease stigma around mental illness. Mental illness impacts millions. Promoting the skills to help manage it and the awareness surrounding it is more necessary than ever, especially during this time of COVID-19. There will be events each week or every other week that involve discussion or activity to promote wellbeing, with a goal to have at least 15 people each event. More frequent, but smaller-scale events allow flexibility for students to participate. Some examples include self-care activities, discussions around mental health, having a speaker, and such.
