" Working with other Millennium Fellows will enable me to share and learn important knowledge about how to increase the impact that I am making and help to make the world a better place. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Foreign Language Education

Helping educate local public school students in foreign langauges. During the Millennium Fellowship I ended up preparing and laying the groundwork for hopefully launching my project in the second semester; I judged that with Covid and also other personal factors that it would not be wise to attempt to have it go this fall. So my work was all about preparations, education on how best to launch and implement a project, etc.
