" I am honored and grateful to be part of the Millennium Fellowship Class of 2020 because through creating different ventures, I have realized the importance of having a community that inspires you and pushes you in your social impact endeavors. With the support and mentorship of the Millennium Fellowship, I can better expand my network to include a diverse group of like-minded changemakers, thinkers, and doers and empower myself with the skills needed to better our changing world. The UN Sustainable Development Goals have sparked my interest in a myriad of social causes, and the Fellowship will allow me to continue to learn about the world around me and embrace challenges. "
