" I'm a true idealist, a revolutionary left-wing, and an activist. I truly believe that I can make a significant impact on the world by understanding my community and myself first. I've been working on my intrapersonal intelligence and I've been changing myself for better for the last couple of years, now I'm ready to change my community and hopefully, the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Swapshion
Swapshion is a project that is focused on eradicate one problem that is involved in the global pollution: the brief cycle of life of clothes. The society is used to continuously throw away their clothes, instead, we are offering everybody an alternative for a better use of the clothes by hosting a collective where people will be able to donate or swap any item they want by giving one and getting one different in return. (specifically: shoes, t-shirts, pants, shorts, jeans, etc)
Due to the pandemic we won't be able to host the collectives so, our goals within August-December are to contact associations where we will donate the clothes collected after the pandemic, work on our logistics strategy, create our identity, spread our project so people get to know us and plan our new goals for the upcoming year.
