" Creating the most positive impact I can through the interest and abilities that I love and contain is the mindset I live my life by. Taking all that I have and using it in order to further my work in Food Insecurity is what I strive to do and being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will uplift me and teaches me new skills so that I may achieve this in a more attainable way and in a method that is in accordance with the UNAI principles and SDGs. I am overwhelmed with enthusiasm with the new knowledge and perspectives this opportunity will bring. "
