" I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because it is a great opportunity to work assiduously with goal-driven individuals to impact tremendously the girl child's interests in science and engineering endeavors. I also love that I would be encouraging girls to be more involved in STEM. I believe their involvement would lead to more breakthroughs and discoveries, which would ultimately change the STEM gender bias. Train the girl child and you have trained a whole nation. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Y-E-S We Can
This project involves encouraging the girl child to be engaged in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) subjects which had been previously and presently dominated by the boy child. Our goal is to positively impact a minimum of 150 girls. We do believe that these 150 girls would, in turn, make disciples of other girl children, thus propping them up for future leadership roles.
