" I'm thrilled to be a Millennium Fellow and to be a part of the larger community that works in collaboration for a better future. I'm working for more partnerships for attaining SDGs as I believe firmly in collaboration as much as I do in individual contributions. This I do so as I want everyone to walk with me into this future we're bringing. "
