" The thoughts of being source of help to people and quest for knowledge and knowledge sharing in order to navigate through life has made me looking around for programs like Millennium Fellowship. Because I knew the type of opportunity this program could give to me, I was very happy when I got the message of being one of the few selected people who were willing to be a fellow. This add up to my self esteem and boosted my moral and gave me assurance of how great I could be if I could improve on what I had been doing and even learn more. My happiness knew no boundaries being part of this program. I will foreverly be proud of my self being one of the few selected fellow. "
