" Communication is a hallmark of some of the greatest initiatives the world has seen. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will help me use this tool for the right things, driving change for a huge section of society. Through this fellowship, I'm looking forward to growing and learning from as many people as I can- so I can help as many people as possible. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Sign With Us
Sign With Us is an initiative that aims to work for individuals with hearing and speech impairment by spreading Indian Sign Language based literacy amongst academics, corporates and general communities. This will aid multilingual and inclusive learning in Indian academic institutions. Which connects to SDG 4 i.e quality education and SDG 10 i.e Reduced Inequality. Alongside, we aim to sensitise corporates to help the hearing and speech impaired communities get equal opportunities to build a career. This would support them to become financially independent.
About the Millennium Fellow
Sanskriti Bhatnagar is a Media & Communication major at IILM University, Gurugram. At the young age of 4, Sanskriti began to work for those who needed help, regardless of what that help may have been. In all that has changed, that spirit has never vanished. Today, Sanskriti works to spread awareness of the inadequacies that plague the world- ranging from education all the way to the climate crisis. She believes that awareness, education, and communication have the power to change the world. Having organised a variety of philanthropic initiatives throughout high school, university, and her places of work, Sanskriti has cultivated great leadership and communication skills.
Inspired by her own parents, Sanskriti wishes to continue to do so and aspires to be a working professional that can use her skills wisely, to truly make a difference.
