" I'm highly excited and overwhelmed to be a Millennium Fellow. Growing up, I have realized that, one of the key opportunities you can use to help contribute your quota and help change the world for the better is through leadership. Millennium Fellowship is better platform for me to help exhibit such leadership capabilities. I possessed such potential to instill in others a hope for success and a believe in myself. I strongly believed that with a Positive mind and team work, we can empower people to accomplish their goals. "

This project priotises in the area of eradicating poverty with some aspect tackling girls child education. The project seeks to eradicate poverty in Ghana and the world at large by reducing the cycle of inequality through better employment and also through good and quality education especially of the girl Child.
