" Only those who seek shall find.
I'm extremely excited to be a Millennium Fellow as seeking to learn and work for the causes I'm so passionate about will ultimately help me find solace by contributing to changing society. I seek a change and I am hoping, the fellowship will be a catalyst to aid my learning process to find the change. I look forward to honing my skills, creativity, knowledge, network and advance my route for contributing towards the SDGs! "
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.
