" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is a super opportunity to work and interact with like minded Millennium Fellows. I also enjoy the part that at the end of the day I would have built on my leadership that will help me make a tremendous impact on the lives of others. I vehemently believe that good health and well-being is what keeps the human resource and the economy in a better shape and until we have a quality healthcare system that is accessible by all, I shall never stop fighting.
