" Every year, around 9 million people die of hunger, according to the international relief agency Mercy Corps. That's more than the death toll of AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. I believe it was Mahatma Gandhi who said 'There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread'. But God cannot really come from heaven to provide bread that's why he made people like me. To enable me to reach part of the 9 million people who die from hunger. I've always felt the need to help eradicate hunger. I wouldn't be here if I had been starved to death. Today I am here to contribute my quota to eradicating hunger in my own small way. "

About the Millennium Fellow
Ampong Blessing Catherine is my name. Blessing is a hardworking and detail oriented person with a melancholic trait. Being a melancholic Blessing is quite introverted and mostly avoids being noticed. Thoughtfulness and striving for perfection has always been one of her greatest assets. As such whatever she sets her mind to must be accomplished and in an almost perfect manner. She also has a sharp and profound intellect which makes her stand out among her peers. Last but not least Blessing is a great supporter of family,friends and coworkers and people almost instantly like her personality.
Striving for perfection however makes her spend too much time on a single project. Which is one of the weaknesses she's trying her maximum best to overcome.
