" I view the Millennium Fellowship to be a journey. One in which socially-driven individuals learn from one another about new
ways of changing the world for the better. I
firmly trust that this path of discovery ultimately
results in the elucidation of common grounds
between diverse conceptions of social impact,
and therefore, harbours global unity for, and in
the achievement of its goals. It is for this
reason I am humbled-and exicited-become a Millennium
Fellow. Through the program’s international
platform, I endeavour to critically learn from
the viewpoints and ideas about the
environment of people around the world and
utilise these to further my own understanding
and passion for the same. "
