" Exploration and connecting with others have been my hope to fully reach my working goal.
Being part of the Millennium Fellowship will enhance my leadership skills to fully contribute to the development of my country. The skills I will gain from the Millennium Fellowship will help me make my contributions to my community and school more tangible and align with the SDGs goals.
I am excited to explore my vision, connect with others and learn new skills that will make me more vibrant. Learning new things from the Millennium Fellowship will be a great deal for my mentees, my community and country at large, because I will be giving back to them what I have learned from the Millennium Fellowship.
