" I am excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because I believe its going to be a stepping stone to nature my set goals and create positive change among my Fellow youths and the community at large. The reason as to why I do the work I do is that I believe I have a legacy that I have to keep among my community and my Fellow youths which motivates me to work hard. Iam working hard to see that peace is restored in Northern Uganda which has been through a series of long wars with victims of inner and outer wounds from the war. "
