" Creating a global network with people who share the desire to create a better world will give me a great insight about how to create social impact in global context. Becoming a Millennium Fellow will create an opportunity to bridge across different cultures. I will have the chance to practice collaboration, creative and innovative thinking, open mindedness and how to be solution oriented while having a humane focus. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Let's Be United
Let's Be United is a project that aims at strengthening the social adaptation of the migrant kids who are facing social barriers in elementary school. We conduct workshops which have different topics each week. Each workshop aim to bring in global values such as empathy, global citizenship, gender equality and tolerance. This values are reflected in art, drama and music activities and games.
