" For as long as I can remember I have been extremely passionate about basketball. One of my biggest takeaways from the sport is that individual growth does not guarantee victory. Only when a team works in cohesion, by uplifting each other; does a team truly succeed. These values of mine strongly resonate with those of the SDGs. I hope that my journey through this fellowship allows me to hone on this quality in order to create a long-lasting impact that has the potential to drive change. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Ivory Tower
Project Ivory Tower is a collaborative research society where members research on the Sustainable Development goals of the UN. Alongside our projects, we also aim to spread social awareness through our website and social media pages. We have undertook two research projects to analyze:
1) The concept of dignified and undignified occupations and their effect on mental health of the workers with special reference to the pandemic.
2) The influence of patriarchy on all the three genders i.e. men, women and the non-binary and how it affects the genders differently in the North/South regions of the country.
