" I'm excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it give me the opportunity to execute my project on a professional level. It raises the integrity of my work and I have the privilege of sharing my ideas with other fellows with whom I'll journey over the next few months.
I'm excited about my project because I think everyone should have a healthy self esteem. However, I met more females with low self esteem than males. And, it is appalling the number of women that are poor in the world. If the world must be free from poverty, women must develop the esteem and mental strength to execute their great ideas. Basically, they should be free from the belief that they are less than the other gender.
So, I will help young teenagers and women between ages 14 and 24 understand self Awareness, discover themselves and know where in the world, they're most needed. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Confidence Project
The Confidence Project seeks to teach teenagers, Females and males, about concepts of self awareness, self acceptance, self discovery, etc. in order to boost their self esteem and confidence. This would enable them discover their potentials from an early age and set themselves up for global impact and advancement of the SDGs.
