" I am excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because, as a climate change activist, I am thrilled to meet people from all over the world and their perspectives on the current climate crisis. I truly believed we can not battle climate change if not all voices are heard, and as a black climate change activist I feel empowered by this opportunity. I am also excited to collaborate with others and to uplift my community together! "
