" It's one thing to advocate for change. It's another to create the change you want to see. When I got my acceptance letter into the Millennium Fellowship I immediately felt empowered. With the Fellowship backing my passions I have a reaffirmed faith that there is a reality of progressive change happening. What once seemed farfetched now is within my grasps. "
