" I'm excited for Millennium Fellowship because we rarely find opportunities that allow us to not just work for ourselves but for the greater good of the society and people around us. This idea of working for the betterment of society with like minded people captivates me towards MCN. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Baydaar
Baydaar means "to awake" and seeing the women in the society we live in, this project aims to work for how women can step out of their comfort zones and pursue the goals they've set for themselves. Societies all over the globe have a certain mindset about something and when it comes to women we see it's about not letting them pursue what they want to achieve in their lives for certain communities. They aim to inspire women with their storytelling and educational cycles on how women can do what they want to achieve in their lives.
Project Baydaar will live primarily on Twitter and Instagram, so they hope to have at least 1000 followers on Twitter, 500 for Instagram, 1000 Retweets, and 1000 page visits per week. They are aiming for at least 50 stories of empowerment and for Project Baydaar to be featured on at least 5 other publications. Lastly, they hope to touch at least 5 communities. Additionally, they will also have an educational cycle of a physical sort in backward places around campus where they will arrange seminars for the very under-privileged and downscale the experience they have because of their exposure. They aim to have 5 seminars with 5 different communities.
About the Millennium Fellow
December 28th, 2000 is the date when this Khattak family got bestowed with their first child in Peshawar city who the family named Shaheer. Living in different cities throughout his life, he developed the quality of adapting to new environments in less time but it's not just limited to this. There were times when he lived in backward cities like Thatta, where he was bullied upon for not being resonant to the cultures and traditions of these cities and its people. At a very young age, this enabled him to develop strong emotional intelligence so as to not let these problems play any part in shattering the confidence that he was developing and these to not be a wall between the learning that he was striving hard for. He was led to the purpose of his life after going through these tough times, which is to create an impact around serving humanity with the privilege that he has been bestowed with.
