" Being a Youth and a Climate Activist, I always am excited to get enrolled in programs where I meet different people and youth, with different backgrounds, skills and experiences, from around the world, who are not only determined to bring a change but also are change agents themselves. With education and training, I believe that we can not only contribute but also make sure that the life below water stays healthy by all means and that basic awareness is created everywhere! I believe that by joining the Millennium Fellowship, I will get to work with diverse people and together we can create a positive impact that goes a long way by achieving and contributing towards the Global Goals!
