" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it presents a new challenge to work for the betterment of community, and an opportunity to meet others that have the same object in mind. It is also an opportunity that adds to my learning curve of service and leadership, which I will attain through experience, both on the field and getting to share the experiences of those I am serving, and through the connections I will make through this fellowship. "

About the Millennium Fellow
"Dream no small dreams for they have no power to move the hearts of men." This Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe quote personifies Victor Taremwa, a dreamer, visionary and young law student with a keen interest in political issues. He is a budding writer and poet, hobbies that he has had since childhood.
Victor Taremwa is also interested in African literature, world history and issues related to government and policy.
Ultimately, Taremwa believes that leadership should be about service, and not title. Leadership is about dreaming big, to move the hearts of men.
