" I am excited and honored to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because of the very great opportunities this platform presents. I am one to always advocate for the equality of the sexes and the recognition of women rights. I am happy that I was selected to project this very important ideology to the world in my own little way. It is my hope and prayer that I fight the scourge of inequality till we achieve a more balance world devoid of inequality due to race, gender, or sexual orientation. "
