" I am beyond excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because of the brilliant minds working to advance some of the world's hardest socioeconomic challenges. As the 2020 election approaches at the same time as a worldwide pandemic, democracy and equality are the most fundamental components that must prevail. By working alongside government officials and the connections that other Millennium Fellows will undoubtably have, I cannot wait to use the platform this fellowship gives to ensure a healthy election, while also contributing to the values the United Nations have set for a better society. "
