" A stained-glass window is composed of various lights and colors, each piece with its own uniqueness and history that together surmounts to a grand display of beauty. Similarly, every campus has thousands of individuals, each person having a talent, passion, brilliant mind, or distinctive qualities that can make a difference in our communities. As a Millennium Fellow, I am excited to make the best of these differences as I unite with my peers to shine hope and positivity in small pockets of our world that will collectively create change with powerful synergy.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Connecting Hearts for Poverty
"Connecting Hearts for Poverty" is a short video series shedding light on various issues connected to poverty. The objective of these videos are to showcase the needs of impoverished communities, engage students in performing varying acts of kindness and community service in attempts to address those needs, and allow today's youth to share their voices on why we care for and must work together to eradicate poverty.
The video clips will be pushed on the Instagram page of NSU RESULTS, contributing to the organization's mission of ending poverty and inspiring poverty advocates.
Organize at least two awareness events for global poverty and domestic poverty respectively.
Recruit at least 20 people to participate in various acts of kindness/community service and spread awareness on the needs of impoverished communities.
Highlight at least 4 different actions and aspects of poverty through the video series.
Produce at least one video by the end of December to share with our members of Congress in time for the FY '22 appropriations cycle, for which RESULTS annually meets with Congress on the issues of poverty.
