" The number one way to pursue happiness is by helping others and what better way to help others than through empowerment. The Millennium Fellowship will offer a variety of professional development skills that will contribute to the growth of my purpose.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Let Them Hear You
My project entitled Let Them Hear You is a collection of poetry designed to hold space for others. Through sharing my creative works I have set the stage for meaningful conversations. In doing so our campus community has come together to share their challenges regarding diversity and how we can better serve one another. Not only has my poetry inspired my community to use their voice but it has established a comfortable environment where can empower one another.
