Hosei University | Tokyo, Japan | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 5
" I have always held a passion for social and environmental problems, and recently, student organizations, which I believe are strong unions, to bring about awareness and even possible entrepreneurial solutions to some of the significant issues plaguing our world. Consequently, I believe that this Millennium Fellowship will help take my social impact to the next level in many ways. During the Millennium Fellowship, I am excited and hope to improve my leadership, Critical thinking, and Agility skills. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Ratemybooks
My hope is for this to be a helpful tool for university students to choose the best books to write papers on for this fall and onwards. Focusing on SDG numbers four and ten, Ratemybooks aims to help move the needle in terms of getting more university students to read books. At Ratemybooks, you can review books that you have read for others to be inspired to read or advise them about books to avoid. The goal is to allow students from all over the world to voice their opinions on books and view what students from different universities are reading.
