" I have known fewer honors greater than to be spent on a course bigger than ourselves. This fellowship is an opportunity to paint, alongside other well deserving individuals, a world that's waiting up for the youth. The different dreams, are the different colors that fill the canvas of a day yonder, when all those who believed in the beauty of their dreams shall take a seat at the table of prosperity. True education, I believe, and not just mere schooling is the vehicle to take us thither, alongside a strong belief, an unparalleled will to succeed and a purpose-led life. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Joy of Knowledge
This project aims to empower the youth and fuel community economic development by entrenching the ideals of true education. This will make people more self dependent, accelerate innovation and invention thereby increasing entrepreneurship, employment and reduce poverty and crime rates.
