" I very much excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is a great opportunity to express my ideas and solutions through our project. This can lead to many changes in society. It brings improvement in an individuals life. Also, it makes the university and community to recognise my work and potentiality that I am taking part. This helps me to meet with the great leaders of the world. Hence I am looking forward to working with the fellowship. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Building humans to think differently
Building humans to think differently is the project based on the lifestyle. It tells how the small changes in an individual can lead to an influence on society. Humans tend to teach others before following it. It needs to be changed in society. The present world is in a dangerous situation where pollution is increasing, forests are burning etc. Majorly we are planning to take up our project on the environment which includes clean drinking water, sanitation, sustainable health and many other.
During August- December, I am willing to provide solutions to the problems of sanitation and drinking water. Also, wanted to provide a new methodology to bring some changes in the environment. And make sure to reach the people of our community through our project.
