" After working in various fields of social work over the course of my life, I have come to this realization that to bring about a change one has to take charge and that can't be done without having strong leadership skills. Therefore, I feel Millennium Fellowship is the perfect place for me. The idea of Convene, Challenge, and Celebrate is what I would like to work with, to not only upskill myself but also to contribute more to the community. The Millennium Fellowship is a golden opportunity to interact with young leaders with
innovative ideas from various parts of the world and have an intercultural dialogue with various students associated with the Millennium Campus Network. It will not only help to increase the impact created by our Project in a very effective way but also help us as individuals to become better professionals, responsible citizens, and strong leaders thereby helping us to quench our thirst to see a better tomorrow.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Parwaaz
Parwaaz aims to assist the students and society to normalize the discussion of mental health and reduce the stigma associated with it. The purpose of this Project is to promote, restore and maintain a positive mental health. Parwaaz is constituted on the idea of assisting the students and society to reduce the stigma associated with mental health, promote help seeking behaviours and emotional well-being practices, and prevent suicide through individual education and outreach events. There is a need for teenagers and adolescents to be aware of mental health issues that affect their peers and community as well as resources for how to seek help. It is important to cultivate practices that support emotional wellbeing. When mental health is overlooked, it can have detrimental effects on the individual and the community. For this cause, the whole team of Parwaaz is determined to spread awareness by arranging workshops, counseling sessions, activities and a lot more.
