Sciences Po | Paris, France | Advancing SDG 3 & UNAI 6
" I'm thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow, especially given how societies and lives have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic this year. I hope to advance issues pertaining to equality and social justice, and look forward to working with like-minded peers both from my institution and around the world. An adage that I strive to live by is be the change you wish to see in the world, and I hope to do just that with the opportunities afforded to me by the Millennium Fellowship. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: But really... Ça va? Podcast Series
But really... Ça va? is an initiative that focuses on SDG3 by addressing topics pertaining to mental health and social issues, such as cultural differences and social norms/taboos. This podcast is also accompanied by physical workshops run by field experts which aim to provide the Sciences Po community with a better understanding on topics addressed in the podcasts, such as the pressures of social media, sexual harassment and inequality. In essence, this project seeks to cast a spotlight on mental health topics faced by youths which have conventionally been stigmatized, and to convey the idea that sometimes, it is okay not to be okay.
