Amity University | Mumbai, India | Advancing SDG 3 & UNAI 3
" I am so excited to be a Millennium Fellow as this is a great opportunity and an amazing platform provided by UNAI and MCN for college students like me to further our vision into a project that will positively impact young minds and bring an optimistic change in this world. My project provides me with a chance to enlighten the youth that having questions about our body, sex-education, periods, mental health issues is not something to be ashamed about and to assist them with the required details and materials for the same. I love that I get to work with like-minded peers as a community towards shaping young minds. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Let's Talk Explicitly (LTE)
Project Let's Talk Explicitly (LTE) aims at destigmatizing the prevailing belief in the society that conversations around sex-ed and mental health are always to be discussed in a hushed tone. LTE is focused initiating open conversations around sex-ed and mental health among the Gen-z by advocating one lesson at a time.
