" I am so excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is a good Avenue to harness certain life principles. However, my advocacy on health can never be overemphasized. I strongly believe that being a Millennium would make me have positive impacts in my society and Nigeria at large. it had been a turbulent time that I have desired to be a Millennium Fellow, having known it would be a good Avenue to make my life to advocate for good health a reality. Poor personal hygiene among other health challenges in Africa can be mitigated by keeping people informed about it. it is with deep sense of appreciation and euphoric feeling that I received the approval be a Millennium Fellow.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Awareness on communicable diseases
Commicable diseases are diseases that are easily transmitted between people, it is better said to be contagious diseases. Examples of such diseases include Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis, flu, sexually transmitted diseases, 2019-nCov e.t.c. They may be viral or bacteria Infections. My project will However dwell on sensitizing people especially in my community about the spread of these diseases, by training them on proper measures to prevent themselves from contracting the diseases. I shall be orienting them on the need for them to observe quickly, changes in their physiological variables, such as Bidy temperature, colour of urine and sputum and Blood pressure. This will invariably reduce the severity of such diseases and they can therefore be treated at early stages. I will also be advocating on the asymptomatic attributes of communicable diseases, that is to inform people that they may be infected without showing a symptom. As a medical Laboratory science student, I will create an Avenue for people to have some basic medical check up. Finally, I shall be making awareness on the need for them to practice a healthy life style which boosts immunity and help fight against oppotinistic infections. Such practices include good feeding habits and sanitation.
