" Conversations sparks change and the Millennium Fellowship presents an opportunity to do both. As a Millennium Fellow, I will be able to engage with other like minded youths, challenging my own perspectives and beliefs, whilst also allowing me to better serve those who's voices I strive to amplify. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: S(H)E the docuseries
s(H)e - the docuseries” is a projected aimed at sparking discourse over various social issues with feminist perspective, through short form video content. A majority of these videos are created through community participation, and as such serve as a safe space for dialogue and intercultural exchange. By sharing these videos, s(H)e hopes to bring more attention to the issues of feminism and intersectionality and offer a more nuanced look at these multifaceted issues. In order to fulfill s(H)e's mission, the project is rooted in four core values:
1. INTERSECTIONALITY: All episodes aim to move away from white feminism and represent a more diverse set of opinions and beliefs.
2. INCLUSIVITY: People from all backgrounds/identifications/etc. are welcome.
3. SAFE SPACE: Participants must feel 100% comfortable at all times.
4. DIALOGUE: s(H)e's episodes should lead to an increase in dialogue & exchange not only between the participants during production, but also within audiences.
As a student-led project, s(H)e aspires to expand globally by building up regional chapters and bringing more intersectional and diverse topics into feminist discussions.
