" I am excited to be a Millennium Felow as I can be part of a like-minded community all working towards the same goal of making this planet a better place. I am honored to be able to listen to all the ideas from everybody and do my part in making the world more sustainable. Solving world problems by contributing whatever you can has always been my driving force as it makes you feel like you are having a small hand in a big change. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: SeisCore
SeisCore lays an emphasis on the need of an interdisciplinary platform for engineering students of all branches to come together, collaborate, and brainstorm on cross-domain approaches of solving issues in the real-world scenario. While this club is open to everyone, it will ensure that each involvement would maintain an equal ratio of male and female students. Therefore, it advances gender equality and capacity building.
