" This is the biggest opportunity and a chance to learn and gain the most beneficial and life changing skills that will help me to improve things around me and put my abilities to good work. I believe that through the Millennium Fellowship I will broaden and improve my social and collaborative skills while engaging with other programmers to ameliorate the world around us. I believe in myself and I am confident in my abilities that will change the situation for the better. In the end with all the effort we will pursue our goals and will create the safe environments in our own countries "
Millennium Fellowship Project: "We For Them"
For Millennium Fellowship, I created a project called “We For Them”, which concentrates on the issues of gender equality. Educational projects and speakers will let students gain confidence and speak up. The main event that we already had was an Educational Lecture by one of our professors. The topic was “Women’s rights and Gender Bias”. Around 50 students took part in it, which was a surprising number for us. Through the lecture, they learned more about how to fight for their legal rights on campus and eventually outside of it. Students were able to address their concerns on this topic. With the engaging discussion and exercises that were included in the lecture, we analyzed problems around our campus and found better solutions. We are more motivated to fight injustices in the workplace or in the classroom when we know that we are not alone. With the help of the community, we will also be able to reach out to people who are struggling to achieve their dreams and need a little help from us.
About the Millennium Fellow
Nini Kirtskhaia is motivated student at LCC International University, majoring in International Relations and development. She was born in Tbilisi, the capital city of Georgia. Since High School, she has been driven towards defending and studying more about Humans Rights. While participating in several MUN projects and observing different society types she understood that this problem was massive and the most heartbreaking for her. After gaining some knowledge and working with cases such as Human Rights in workplaces, Children Rights and education, Women Rights and abortion, she decided to choose International Relations as her major and concentrate more on humans that are not able to acknowledge and defend their rights. In the future, she is motivated to pursue her career goals and work in the UN 'Women" and help them to find their voices.
