" Life is based in opportunities. Find your opportunities to create the path that will lead you towards success in your life. Being part of the Millennium Fellowship will be the perfect tool to open more opportunities in my life to progress in my life path, improving my skills and developing better values on me to help my community, my country and my world. With the skills I will gain from the Millennium Fellowship, I will be more able of being an active agent of change of my community, while aligned with the UNAI principles and SDGs. I am really looking forward to increasing my experience by envisioning new ways of learning and getting creativity and inspiration from my team. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Student Initiative Against Misinformation (SIAM)

SIAM focused on combating misinformation around campus. By creating informative posters addressing misinformation and placing them in strategic places around campus, we wanted to make sure that everyone who saw the poster was aware of the increasing need to get correct information from fact-checked and trusted sources. Also, we focused on social media as a way of reaching more audience. We shared our page with people from our countries, which was useful because many people interacted with our posts.
