" Seeing a better, cleaner, less polluted world with a generation that thinks differently and strives to care for it makes me more thrilled to become a Millennium Fellow. To think that I am part of initiating that change especially after a pandemic like Covid19. We only have one Earth and I am passionate about being a voice for her. "
