" I want to be a Millennium Fellow so that I may be transformed into a more responsible citizen of my society in terms of leadership and allow me to be part of the global network that is working on making the world a better place. I desire to bring impact upon the lives of my fellow peers so that they can also be inclusive in bringing thoughtful ideas that can be solutions to societal issues. Being a Millennium Fellow will equip me to handle future projects for the good of my community and also build up skills and experience to work in a real job and help society. "
