" I see my selection into the Fellowship as a very rare privilege considering how stringent the process of selection was. this is going to be a life-transforming opportunity. the thought of interacting with Fellows, Alumni from across the world and have new mentors excites me because lasting relationships and partnership collaborations will be formed as ideas would be exchanged which will enhance promotion of the SDGs. both personal and leadership skills will be greatly improved which will place me in higher pedestal in projecting my social impact. Accessing funds will also be made alot easier as donors will have more confidence in my ability to utilize them. "
