" I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it's a great avenue for me to deliver what I have always wanted to deliver. A great platform to learn and equip myself for the task ahead. The fact that I will be working with young like minded people like me as a team to improve lives is also something of inestimable joy. I have this assurance that a program like Be A Giant will boost professional competence which will result into better living conditions among youths and the community at large. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Be A Giant (BAG)
This project is about educating youths about their choice of profession whether formally or informally and attaching them to experts in the field. The goals are to at least reach 200 youths in schools and those out to school and educate them on becoming competent in their chosen career. Also, the Fellow hopes to attach as many youths to experts who will serve as a role model to them for life.
