" I'm excited to join a global network of motivated individuals who are passionate about tackling the world's challenges and who want to join me in promoting the United Nation's sustainable development goals on our college campuses and within our communities. The Millennium Fellowship will give me the opportunity to form greater connections, provide me access to world-class training, and help me refine my leadership skills while working collaboratively on issues that affect us all. Ultimately, I hope to use the Fellowship, not only to help further my own social impact work, but to inspire my students to make their own impact within their local communities one day. "
