" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I believe it's a step towards bringing change in my community. The Fellowship is in line with my passion in carrying out community service and bettering the lives of others. I hope to give a hand in projects that will bring impact as well as acquire skills such as good verbal and written communication skills, critical thinking, teamwork as I interact with other Fellows and the MCN team. I believe every child needs to go to school and that has inspired me to see that A shoe that inspires reaches hundreds of children. "
