" It's an honor to be part of the Millennium Fellowship. I'm very excited to meet and learn from international youths that are hungry for change. I like that his program is a great opportunity to impact the Mexican community through my passions. I believe that with awareness and small actions the world can make sustainability a habit. Therefore I am working so that responsibility is a priority in people's consumption. My biggest purpose is to make sure that people really value what they buy. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Swapshion
Swapshion is about changing the way we perceive fashion. We are trying to influence people on our campus and city so they can use second hand clothing, give them the idea that clothing has no gender and it’s not disposable. Create awareness on responsible consumption and production, gender equality and climate action by partnering with other associations, local entrepreneurs and fashion design students that share our goals, host webinars, and once coronavirus ends, a marketplace inside the campus in which students can exchange old clothing with each other.
