Qatar University | Doha, Qatar | Advancing SDG 10 & UNAI 7
" I am very excited to be a member of the Millennium Fellowship Program as it would give me a platform to launch my project pertaining to SDG 16 that I am deeply passionate about, meet amazing like-minded people and share ideas and work together. The future is youth and with the rise in the various problems around the globe, I want to be a positive influence to educate and guide people, particularly the younger generations, towards a better future. It is time to get out of our comfort zones, raise the voices of the unheard and look into the depth of social issues surrounding us, address them and look for solutions to mitigate them to better the quality of life. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Firefly
Project Firefly is based on social issues and aims to encourage people to connect and share ideas through dialogue and discussion. It aims to shine on the individualistic characters of people and explore the way their perceive/view the world and it's various issues and project solutions and ways to mitigate possible obstacles that need to be tackled on the particular issues. Because people are a harbor of a variety of experiences and knowledge, Project Firefly views each individual as a glowing firefly in this very dark world where coming together would lighten up and lead to path to a better, brighter future.
