" In the words of Jim Kouzes and Barry Posner, Leadership is a dialogue, not a monologue. I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because this is an opportunity to engage with leaders from different countries and learn more than a mouthful from them. Furthermore, these are leaders who have the same interest as me, the interest of advancing SDGs on our campuses and in our communities. I am particularly interested in advancing SD3 (good health and wellbeing) through raising awareness about the importance of good dental health among primary school going children because this an important but yet underlooked topic in the school curriculum as well as in the community at large. Poor oral health compromises the quality of life and can lead to complications in the long run. As a medical doctor in training, not only is it my job to save lives but it is also my job to preserve and prolong life. "
