" Helping people discover who they can become motivates me to keep growing and learning. Being part of the Millennium Fellowship will help me develop skills such as resilience, teamwork, and commitment as well as provide me resources that I can apply in my future career as a teacher and as a part of my community. I'm excited to share with other my skills and knowledge but I'm even more excited to learn from others and grow together. "
