" I am excited to be a part of a Millennium Fellowship as it means a great opportunity to not only acquire skills to execute a better and greater impact through my project, but it's also a chance to get to know other young people as passionate as I am towards projects that aim to have a strong repercussions in our communities.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Leonora
Leonora seeks to collaborate to social change through education and active participation from students in our university; thus creating one outside our own community. We hope to, by December 2020, establish Leonora as a strong project on campus that is able to start it's own journey to bring quality social themed education on and off campus that promotes critical thinking and seeks a fairer environment for everyone.
