Lebanese American University | Beirut, Lebanon | Advancing SDG 4 & UNAI 1
" Changing the world, making the lives of human beings better, diminishing poverty, promoting education, and supporting women are the goals I've always been dreaming of, working to aid in their fulfilment, and grabbing any chance that help me better serve them. The world we are born in might not be perfect, however together we can make a difference starting individually and then encouraging others to take a part and put their hands together for a real global change. The Millinium Fellowship will help me and my colleagues recieve knowledge, connect with people from different areas of our earth and have a wider eye to see more opportunities and ideas that could help us better change our community and develop it. I'm excited to have an unforgettable, life changing, change motivating, encouraging experience. After this program we believe that we could develop our project and apply it in our community to help the citizens in our country and in the world have better lives and opportunities. "
