" “Those people who develop the ability to continuously acquire new and better forms of knowledge that they can apply to their work and their lives will be the movers and shakers in our society for the indefinite future.” – Brain Tracy. I strongly resonate with this quote.
Becoming Millennium Fellow would be a great honour for me because it will provide me with the knowledge and skills to effect the most needed change in my community. The fellowship will also provide an occasion for me to meet with other global influencers. I have a deep desire to help others, and I understand that I cannot do it alone. Cooperation is the thorough conviction that nobody can get there unless everybody gets there. "
