" I`m most favored to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because of the platform the programme presents to mold myself and contribute to an agenda that seeks to solve global trouble. I`m also excited about the opportunity to work and learn from the global community of young potential leaders. I strongly share in the principle of thinking globally but acting locally. Hence, it is my responsibility to contribute to the sanitation problems since I believe it is not only an environmental problem but also a health problem. "
