" Inclusion and diversity in the society have always been at the forefront of my endeavors. Being involved in community service and the startup scene for a long time, it is clear to me that inclusion is the key to sustainable development. Despite numbers indicating higher rates of prosperity, innovation and well-being in inclusive communities, we have yet to establish the significance of prioritizing diversity and inclusion in every social sector.
I believe becoming part of the Millennium Fellowship would allow me to enrich my leadership skills and network with some of the finest talents and brightest personalities currently working for social change. I am looking forward to utilizing this new opportunity to further implement my initiative. "
