" I cannot wait to dive into the Millennium Fellowship! It is an opportunity not only to receive true recognition over an issue but make effectual change within the lives of so many people. The fellowship provides a multitude of driven individuals that can help collaborate and establish change. With this fellowship, I am combating sexual violence in K-12 institutions and beyond. There are barely any efforts being made or the efforts end up harming the survivor. Every person should be able to receive any education without having to fear for their own safety every moment they step onto campus. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Heard and Recognized
To systematically change and create better, sustainable pathways on how society deals with sexual/gender violence within all institutions. It focuses on the protection of students within K-12 institutions and higher education institutions. The goal is to create a safe environment for students to succeed without fearing the environment they are placed in. There are three specific goals that I plan to achieve. The first goal is to partner with a local school and provide specific resources for students that are undergoing this issue. How they measure their success is through the emotional well-being and overall health of the student. The second goal is to create events in different K-12 institutions that are specifically aimed towards administration and students.
The success of this is determined by administrative change to the method of how institutions carry sexual assault. The third goal is to create a partnership with academic scholars and legislators.
