" I am thrilled to be a part of a Millennium Fellowship as it means not only a tremendous opportunity to acquire skills to execute a better and greater impact through my project, but it also provides a chance to meet other young leaders who are as passionate as I am, towards achieving a sustainable future. I value this opportunity to establish resources and connections that will empower me to take my social impact to a higher level. I have addressed this necessity for momentum toward sustainability in a myriad of projects over the years, and I'm now grateful to be able to put my ideas into practice in the real world. "
