" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is a great chance for me to network and better my leadership skills. Watching a close friend battle depression to a point of suicide attempts made me passionate about mental health. Also with the increasing rate in reproductive illness in women, especially cancer related, I think it's high time we educated our women on reproductive hygiene. This program gives me an opportunity to expound as well as share my ideas about the same with other young people. I am positive that with the right attitude, adequate information and undying passion, we can battle these beasts to their core. "
