" I'm beyond ecstatic to be a Millennium Fellow as it will provide me an amazing opportunity to be a part of the community of students from all over the world who strive to bring a change in our society. It will hence bring me closer to my goal of providing quality education to unprivileged children with behavioral disorders and encompass equality amongst everyone. Removing the label of "special kids" and providing a judgment-free environment to them is the main aim. Ever since I was a little kid, I have loved the United Nations and what it stands for, and to work with them has been my childhood dream, so I'm honored to be a part of the project and turn my dream into reality.
