" I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because it provides me with a platform to share my views not only to the world but also with like minded people and with this, it thus provides me a wide resource base and knowledge. i believe that with this, i will be able to acquire both more knowledge and experience in dealing with the issues that affect society that i aim to solve. i will duely use this opportunity provided to me to exhaust every opportunity to learn and make my self better and thus later apply what i have learnt in solving real life issues.

Millennium Fellowship Project: integration of new feed sources
The project involves assessing the different food sources eaten by the people in communities faced with hunger. This assessment involves analysing the ways the food is harvested, processed, and eaten and subsequently finding ways of improving intake and also intergrating new feed resource ideas from other places within the same locality while taking in mind social and cultural myths of the area in question.
