" I am glad to name myself a Millennium Fellow because I can feel my own importance. With this project, I can tell that my life is meaningful because I can do something for other lives. I have been wondering to work on gender problems in my home country by sharing the experience of my alma mater country. Connecting different points of view, share my own perspective, and come to conclusion are the greatest things for me. "

E means Equal is planning to be in real life and online. For face-to-face meetings up to 300 participants, 12 meetings. For IG account 1000 followers, 500 visits per week. In the future, I am planning to open a YouTube channel where people could see the debates online.
