" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I am part of a supportive and creative community. I am surrounded by ambitious and creative students who are interested in using the education that they receive for social good. In the Millennium Fellowship community as a whole and also in our campus group in Columbia, even though as individuals we come from very diverse backgrounds, we have an obvious binding passion: we want to create an impact, make the world a better place, find solutions to worldwide problems, make a change, and create equal opportunities for every individual simply because we believe that we are all unique but equal.

Millennium Fellowship Project: NYC Restrooms4All
NYC Restrooms4All is a student-led coalition that advocates for public restroom availability throughout the city. The lack of public bathrooms impacts every New Yorker, including pregnant women, parents with small children, people who are menstruating, senior citizens, the homeless, and New Yorkers living with incontinence and other related health issues. Clean and safe bathrooms are essential to human dignity, which is why NYC Restrooms4All is working toward free restrooms throughout New York City.
