" I am excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because I believe in the power of young people to positively impact the world around them, and I believe that the United Nations is one of the most inspirational institutions that exists today. I want to use my experience and the knowledge I gain through this Fellowship to be a positive force in the world, and I look forward to sharing what I have learned with those around me while working to introduce educational opportunities to disadvantaged students in my community and beyond.
