" The new generation leaders need not only literal education but also to open their minds to the evolving world. I am excited to be a part of this great journey as this will not just be a path to self discovery but also an avenue to see the world as my other fellows with great minds see it and make the world better. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Journey for Impact
Journey for Impact aims to equip young people in my society to grow out of the norm that environment and society has dropped them. A lot of young people are exposed to so much discouragement, disappointment, poverty and a lot of social vices and this leads to loss of self-awareness, self-confidence and lost dreams and goals. This project is aimed at capacity building especially mentally and to teach the need for goal setting and planning. Journey for Impact will be hosted primarily on Instagram and we hope to gain at least 500 followers, 500 page visits per week, at least 15 comments per week and we'll be sharing at least 30 stories of survival merged with success and weekly nuggets for self improvement.
