" I am happy to be part of this fellowship. It is a new venture in my life and puts me in a position to grow and nature me as a leader and a humanitarian, persionate about the well being of the marginalized young girls in my community. My team and I have imparted skills of development, self sustainability and confidence in these young girls to build their own lives and be independent. With Millennium Fellowship, I will grow my skills even better. I also hope to develop my connection to the world beyond Uganda, having friends far and wide and also visit the nations beyond my Ugandan boundaries. "
