" The Millennium Fellow is a golden opportunity for me to elicit a change in something I deeply cared about, in spite of how slight the change is. Beneath the glamour of an international financial centre, my city is actually one of the most stressful cities in the world. Its citizens are always too hectic to reserve some time to be gentle to their fellows as well as themselves, resulting in high incidence of emotional disorders. I aspire to raise the public awareness to psychological well-being, thus easing stereotypes to mental health illnesses and creating a more supportive, understanding and friendly society. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: No Stories Left Untold
“No words left unspoken, no sentiments left unfelt, no stories left untold — Everybody is full of stories. Everybody is a storyteller. Everybody is a story-listener. Your stories and feelings matter. YOU matter.” Divided into three phases, Project No Stories Left Untold aims to build a platform where users can mentally support each other via story-telling and story-listening. We share and learn about the stories of ordinary people, and we derive inspiration from them to live a healthier, happier and more meaningful life.
