" I am passionate about ensuring equality and justice for all communities regardless of their socioeconomic status. As the son of two educators, dedication to others was instilled in me from a young age. I know what it's like to feel voiceless and invisible and do not want another person to experience that. The Millennium Fellowship will give me the forum to continue my advocacy on a globe-scale. "
