" Passion for social justice, human rights and simply opportunity drives me. It is an incredible honor to be a Millennium Fellow and I am excited for this opportunity to create new opportunities for others. I believe in the power of the combination of education and encouragment. I was privileged to receive access to education and encouragement and I plan to work hard to ensure that more menstruating people are encouraged to achieve what they seek. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Purseless Periods!
Purseless Periods! seeks to work with low-income communities in Boston in order to promote the use of menstrual cups.
