" I am so excited to be a part of an initiative that encourages young leaders to challenge their creativity and passions with the hard work they meaningfully pursue. The Millennium Fellowship provides an open space for young leaders to further their projects, ideas, creativity as well as creating an opportunity to meet one another as we all strive to make this world a better place for all of us.

Millennium Fellowship Project: American Medical Women’s Association at the University of California, Berkeley
The American Medical Women’s Association (AMWA) at the University of California, Berkeley advocates for women all over the world. We work to progress gender equity, promote women’s health, and provide a platform for voices to be heard and transform ideas into realities. To further advance gender equity and women’s health in Berkeley’s community, we partner with multiple UC Berkeley student organizations so we can amplify the goals of these organizations. We hope to build relationships with city organizations outside of the university so we can help more women and young girls around the city.
