" Growth and ingenuity are held at the back of my mind. I believe being part of the Millennium Fellowship will expand my skills collectively. The skills, mentorship and network I will gain from the Millennium Fellowship will enable me help young females in unprivileged areas of the country and other international communities to grow in hygiene and encourage them to embrace their femininity. All this will add a step to the good health and well being of young women in collaboration with the sustainable developmental goals. I am very delighted and excited to grow professionally and competently through this fellowship. I am eager to gain new ways of learning and have an open mind to innovativeness. "
