" Community and connection are what ignites my passion for social justice. To me, the Fellowship means camaraderie. I truly feel if we can come together as an international community and see others as our peers rather than the competition we can start making a difference today and not tomorrow. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Muse

Music education is expensive, and it is most often the initial cost of buying an instrument that makes it inaccessible. To bring music to more students, MUSE collects donated second-hand instruments and services them with the money raised at fundraiser concerts, so the instruments can then be donated to schools in rural and low socioeconomic areas.

About the Millennium Fellow

Isabel is a creative, innovative and team-orientated student currently studying classical singing at the Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University. Isabel began her social justice journey during her studies of the International Baccalaureate and was inspired to continue to work towards a brighter more equitable tomorrow. Through the fantastic opportunities she has had to travel the world with music, Isabel has had the pleasure to meet people from all walks of life and be inspired by their life stories. It was these experiences that made her want to find a way to make the world more of an international community as opposed to a collection of countries.
