" I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because it is a wonderful platform to take my social impact drive to the next level. I love the fact that I will get to connect and engage with diverse brilliant minds across different parts of the world. I hope to perform my part in creating a richly impactful value-added system as well as develop myself personally and professionally. Health is wealth is a cliché that never gets old and I believe that with good health and wellbeing, the world will be a better place to live. As a public health enthusiast and with the gruesome task ahead in my home continent, I hope to give my best and contribute my quota towards ensuring that quality healthcare will be attainable to all.
