" Ranging my interests from arts and sciences to politics and sports, my friends quote me as the "Jack of all trades, master of none". I questioned myself - does anything matter? Since no one lives forever, the goal is to create something that does, so I thought to myself, how can I play my part? The Millennium Fellowship program is a wonderful platform that not only allows personal development but brings change to the world. By gaining the skills of blending the technicality and practicality, I can help to contribute to the United Nations' Sustainable Goals by narrowing the digital gap. "
