" “I am so excited for the Millennium Fellowship because it will allow me to continue the impact I started with an MCN Fellowship project conducted last year! Not only is it important to educate students on human rights topics, it is also necessary for this education to be accessible. I look forward to expanding my work on the SDGs and the UNAI through collaboration, effort and community. Having better access to human rights education would have changed my experiences as a student for the better, and I’m so grateful to be able to provide this opportunity to many others through the Millennium Fellowship, allowing me to further become the change and impact I want to see, in my community and in the world.” "
