" I am excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship as I want to be the change that I want to see in the world. I want to give hope to other young people like myself who have experienced social and health inequality, and prove through my actions that diversity is a strength. The chance to work alongside diverse youth is a valuable opportunity to build understanding, empathy, and trust among our future leaders. I am dedicated to ending healthcare inequality by breaking down stigma and campaigning for more equitable policies. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Power of Youth
As advocates for Peace and Global Youth Empowerment, the Power of Youth project connects young people together through the concept of positive alternative narrative.The project involves a compilation of stories that showcase the transformational journeys of young people, in line with UN Sustainable Development Goal #16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. We believe that a powerful tool in the promotion of peace is story telling. It is a misconception that young people have yet to experience adversity and through this project they have found that young people possess a passion for peace advocacy. Additionally, the project supports the United Nations Academic Impact Principle #8: Peace and Conflict Resolution.
