" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow, because I am looking forward to developing a program that will support students in underserved schools. There are many inequities in the world and I hope this program will help alleviate even a tiny fraction of these. I am also looking forward to meeting and networking with other fellows. Overall, I am super grateful for this opportunity! "
