" Through the Millennium Fellowship Program, I'd be able to engage with young leaders worldwide and be a part of a community that serves a bigger purpose. A community of enthusiasts, leaders, and activists that lead by example and that aim to make a change. Being a Millennium Fellow would not only be a prosperous experience, but the first step in a long journey of community service, dedication, and social impact. The "What If?" project will expand and will be able to push Lebanon a step closer to sustainability, enhancing economic stability, social awareness, community service, and producing an academically distinguished and passionate workforce. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: What If?
With the economic crisis and unprecedented financial, political, social, and health situation Lebanon is going through, the youths continuously find their talents insinuated and their dreams shattered. It had become impossible for them to gain experience in their domains or be part of projects and jobs that demonstrate their potential. Henceforth, they seek refuge in immigration, leaving Lebanon in lack of the human resources needed to rebuild the infrastructure and replenish the economy. In this manner, to combat mental anguish and contribute to our society, the “What If?” foundation aims to assemble university students from different majors and academic disciplines to take part in various scalable projects that aim to nourish and help the Lebanese society. In brief, architects, designers and engineers will be involved in repairing the infrastructure and renovating wrecked houses. Computer scientists will develop tracking algorithms to track the progress of the project in terms of deliverables and assessed needs. Special tutoring can be offered by the sciences, education, and literature students to enhance the education of the underprivileged. Not to mention the role of business, marketing, graphic design, and medical students in promoting health and awareness especially during the COVID-19 pandemic, enhancing university students' social awareness.
About the Millennium Fellow
“A strong woman stands up for herself while a stronger woman stands up for everyone else.”
Dana El Moghrabi is a passionate, driven, and goal-oriented tech enthusiast. She is majoring in Mechanical Engineering and minoring in Computer Science at the Lebanese American University. (According to her community: shocking for a woman!) She was born in UAE and moved recently to Lebanon to further pursue her studies and her passion for enhancing community service through the use of technology. Empathy is a value that Dana cherishes in her leadership. The hardships Dana and her country, Lebanon, went through shaped her to become an empathetic leader who values emotions and aims to put their heart and soul to lift those around them and provide them with the emotional or professional support they acquire. From here, Dana aims to lead by example and introduce empathy to every aspect of the project she'll be leading. Whether be it from helping the underprivileged or assessing their needs to sharing her skills and networking with the volunteers while collaboratively working on projects, she aims to exhibit a work ethic pillared on acceptance, openness, and empathy.
