" I am deeply grateful and honored to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because it is a great platform for individuals where goals and aspirations are achieved through continuous dialogue, and the presence of leadership within each other for efficient and world-changing work. The Millennium Fellowship believes in the potential of young leaders in accordance with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, and the UN Academic Impact Principles. I believe in these notions wholeheartedly, and I aspire to be in a professional field where I can advance these advocacies further, and provide my own contribution in the development of these goals. It is my responsibility and my true passion to provide relief and aid to communities that need it, in whatever way I can. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: s(H)e - the docuseries
s(H)e is a docuseries project based on the belief that the feminist movement is in dire need of more dialogue on issues that are not covered by mainstream media, and that bring to the forefront intersectional perspectives. s(H)e's aim is to give people a platform to voice their opinions and to enable exchange within diverse communities. In order to fulfill s(H)e's mission, the project is rooted in four core values:
- Intersectionality: All episodes aim to move away from white feminism and represent a more diverse set of opinions and beliefs.
- Inclusivity: People from all backgrounds/identifications/etc. are welcome.
- Safe Space: Participants must feel 100% comfortable at all times.
- Dialogue: s(H)e's episodes should lead to an increase in dialogue & exchange not only between the participants during production, but also within audiences.
As a student-led project, s(H)e aspires to expand globally by building up regional chapters and bringing more intersectional and diverse topics into feminist discussions.
