" It is the spirit and not the form of law that keeps justice alive. I hope to utilize the experience I gain from being a Millennium Fellow in my lobbying initiatives and share all the sources, ideas, and skills with the team and eventually with the membership. Learning about the on-campus and off-campus international student organizations could widen my horizon and inspire the growth of the international student movement on our campus and eventually in Canada. "

About the Millennium Fellow
Sude Guvendik is a globally competitive, inquisitive and vibrant international and legal studies student at Simon Fraser University. She was born in Turkey, raised in Ghana and is currently studying in Vancouver, Canada; indeed a world citizen. The culmination of life struggles and experiences was the emergence of a very strong sense of justice, reciprocity, and compassion for others, particularly for the least powerful and most vulnerable in our midst. These experiences, in essence, pushed her into the field of justice and the worlds of academia and social justice activism. They also allowed her to finally see her mission in life and understand how all her life experiences have shaped her sense of justice. Her view is an interpretation of justice based on the principles of freedom, fairness, compassion, and utilitarianism, or doing the greatest good for the most significant number of people at all times. This drive and ardour translated itself from Sude's experience in the international community and her endless dedication to social action. Throughout her high school and university years, she has organized and led various advocacy projects and initiatives, serving as the international students' advocacy group (ISA) president.
