" I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because it is an opportunity to do something bigger than myself. I believe that if I can inspire someone, that person can inspire someone else and, like this, start a change reaction. Everything starts with a small flame, and if that flame spreads, it can give light to an entire city. I believe that being part of this program, my project will help many people to get not only their passion but also their voice. Also, I want to fight for Human rights because I am an Indian/ Venezuelan woman, and I know what it means not to have a voice, and this fellowship is a way I work on that. As an "Own your crown," "Claim your crown" is going not just to prepare me but prepare the next generation of women to acquire the skills of language, diplomacy, the subject matter of expertise, and understanding of the culture to have a platform to develop their projects. I am beyond grateful because I know that an honest voice is stronger than a shouting crowd. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Claim Your Crown
My project "Claim your Crown" is described as a social organization that empowers women to advance their careers and quality of life by establishing mentorship opportunities, providing informational resources, and creating a community of women that fosters thoughtful guidance and empowerment.
This project's primary purpose is to inspire and empower women to improve their quality of life through career advancement. Therefore, we'd like to bring forth the necessary tools to educate women of the vast career opportunities available, and one way of achieving such a goal is to provide mentorship. My idea is to bring mentors to the programs, specifically female professionals within various industries, to enrich social and employment-related skills that will help women participate within the different spheres of public life.
