The University of South Florida | Florida, United States | Advancing SDG 3 & UNAI 9
" Millennium Fellowship will allow me to connect to the leaders of tomorrow. Being part of this motivated, resourceful and enthusiastic community will allow me to thrive. My project touches several SDGs including 3, 6, 9, 10, 12, 17 and I am looking forward to making an impact in so many areas. I am a firm supporter of financial independence and minority rights. As a disabled, female immigrant of color, I have led my fight alone to change the workings of this world but now I have peers who share the same vision for the future. "
