" For me, the Millennium Fellowship is an opportunity to get out of my comfort zone, and explore new ways that I can help my community. I believe we always have room for improvement in all areas of life, and that even the goodness of our hearts needs to be strengthened by wisdom and experience. The tools and training that the Fellowship provides will help me get one step closer to achieving the service goals I have set for myself, not just for my project, but also in order to give back to those that need it the most in Puerto Rico. "
