" The very thought of being part of a community of bright, passionate people who are determined to bring positive change to society and work for a sustainable future excites me. The Millennium Fellowship, through its successful journey, has proved to be a dream come true for anybody who is enthusiastic about social development. I feel that it is very necessary to collaborate and communicate when it comes to putting novel ideas into practice, global and local levels alike. It is the beauty of our race that we all desire the same things yet we all have unique ways of perceiving and achieving them. And when the synergy of people willing to work in a direction of growth is channelled through guidance and support, anything can be achieved. I hope to build bonds that last a lifetime, and find new ideas that change millions of lives through the Millennium Fellowship. "
