" I am very excited and thankful for the opportunity of partaking in a network that provides a space for young changemakers to impulse their efforts and pursue their dreams to change the planet. I have always believed that changemaking goes beyond the numbers, but the willingness, commitment, intention, and true passion to strive for what you want to see in a better world. Being part of the Millennium Fellowship gives me the opportunity to connect, learn, and share with other people from around the world, supporting me with tools to impulse my impact, and creating a truly global community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project STEAMex
Project STEAMex is a community-based, youth-led organization based in the Greater Monterrey Metropolitan Area, which dedicates to provide STEM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) opportunities to youth in vulnerable communities. Our mission is to "Instill STEAM education as a tool for progress, development, and peace amongst the Mexican youth and their growth to become global changemakers". Through workshops, STEM outreach activities, community impact projects, and robotics teams, Project STEAMex seeks to provide a multidisciplinary and SDG-based educational experience for kids and teenagers, ages 6-18, to develop life skills and technical competencies that can give them tools to become global citizens. Furthermore, Project STEAMex's capacity building and community development model has been replicated in over 15 countries, aiming for this year to expand our local direct impact to over 200 children and expand our presence to 10,000 students in 20 countries.
