" Opportunity and the right platform to execute it is something what an idea needs. I believe Millennium Fellowship is the right place for me to understand the goals from a global perspective. That will not only help me understand the central issue better but also help in creating inventive ideas, become more broad minded and learn to solve things together as a community. I am excited to meet new people, and be challenged to go a step further. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Project Power: A STEM initiative
Project Power focuses on providing an equal representation and opportunity to young females who want to pursue subjects under STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) but are not able to due to the gender stereotypes, patriarchy, and lack of opportunity. Project Power makes them aware of their challenges and opportunities to prepare them better and give an extra step to the ladder of achieving their success.
