" I am very much excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship. I see it as another step taken towards actualizing my goal; SDG 6 Clean water and sanitation. I believe one of the greatest influencer of public health is our environment which burdens me daily thus the need to start from the grassroots by helping them maintain clean water and proper sanitation. Even more exciting is that I will be working with like minded individuals who are highly intellectual and committed to impacting Africa no matter how little. It is a great feat and I can't wait to become a part of this global change. "
