" I am excited to immerse myself in a community of individuals passionate about all facets of global development and to engage with young leaders from across the world.

Millennium Fellowship Project: UNAIDS at Penn
UNAIDS at Penn is a student-run advocacy organization which works with and supports the global efforts of UNAIDS in ending HIV/AIDS as a public health threat by 2030. Through speaker events, film screenings, fundraisers, discussion forums, and long-term collaborations with grassroots community organizations, this project seeks to raise awareness of the continuing AIDS epidemic, educate students on sustainable ways to engage with global health, and mobilize those passionate about this cause toward meaningful impact. This project provides opportunities for reflective discourse on the lasting HIV/AIDS stigma and gender inequities, and it aims to include undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and community members in a campus wide research symposium. This project will ultimately work to unite students with a shared interest in global health around the ambit of the global response to HIV/AIDS.
