" Being part of the Millennium Fellowship will help me learn more and reach out to people I have been wanting to reach out to. It will also help me discover more about my passion that I probably did not know. I am excited because this will help me as well as my peers know how to handle our burdens and come up with resources and solutions as to not resort to the worst (for example, suicide). "
