" My work and passion are driven by connection. The connection between myself and the goal I am working towards, but also the connection with other change-makers. The Millennium Fellowship will allow me to collaborate with advocates on my campus, local to my region, and across the world. I am looking forward to being able to learn and grow together while we collectively explore the principles of the SDGs and push forward our campaigns. "
