" I am so excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is one of the rarest opportunities for me to team up globally with young chaps that really care about their society and are contributing immensely to it's growth and development. I am involved in the FAME Illuminate Project because I am quite passionate about quality education for teenagers and I am really interested in using this medium to give back to my community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: FAME Illuminate Project
