" I am excited to be part of Millennium Fellowship because it is a good place where I will get the opportunity to meet other youth with potential around the world. Also I believe that I will get experience by getting in touch with other people around the world who we may have the alike projects. In addition, you may have a plan, and it become difficult to achieve it when you are working alone but when you are in cooperation, it become easy. so by sharing ideas and cooperate with other fellows, our impacts on our continents and entire world will be revealed.

Many young people think about themselves only where everyone works hard academically so that they will have a good position in a good office but they don't care about the lives of the people in their communities. this has pushed me to make the difference by being a servant leader where will work to serve the poor people in the refugee camps by cultivating on my small land and provide food and jobs to them in this few months.
