" Diversity has always been something that I celebrate and cherish. I want to spread the importance of representation through this Fellowship by educating others on why our differences are worth celebrating. "

Millennium Fellowship Project: Social Awareness Project

The goal of the project is to raise awareness and to generate empathy on LGBTQ+ issues, racism, and sexism by creating and providing free educational materials to educators and students. As of right now, I have detailed specific information for high school students, and hope to present said information in high school classes starting next school year.

About the Millennium Fellow

Shanelle Lehal is a second-year student at Simon Fraser University, BC, Canada. Planning on pursuing Anthropology and Archaeology, Shanelle aims to unite others by appreciating our cultural differences and similarities. As a queer person of colour, she stresses the importance of representation and the celebration of diversity and hopes to emphasize that through the Millennium Fellowship.
