" Becoming an adult in Lebanon during these tough times is realizing that you live in the eye of the storm. Any dream of a better tomorrow, any push towards progress, starts right here. The Millennium Fellowship is exactly what I need: a channel to pour my passion into the aid of my country, a means to help alleviate the needs of my peers, and a way to raise awareness internationally on the many problems the Lebanese youth faces. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Darbak
Darbak is an independent student led initiative that the Millennium Fellows of the St. Joseph University plan to lead throughout the Felllowship program period with an estemated outreach of 300 to 400 people (depending on the rapidly degrading situation in lebanon which will hopefully not interfere). Our aim is to provide orientation for carreers, universities and scholarships available to lebanese students seeing as with the lack of ressources abd current political climate they often feel trapped in their current situations and do not see the possibility to access higher quality education because of the lack means outside of Beirut (the capital) and its suburbs.
About the Millennium Fellow
Céline Souaiby is a driven and passionate Lebanese law student. Her pride and love for her country plays a huge part in her identity and have pushed her, from the age of thirteen, to volunteer among marginalized children, elderly and handicapped people, who have been neglected by their state. She aspires one day to put her sensitivity to social issues to use through her major, but even before that, she hopes that through the Millennium Fellowship, she will be able to make a meaningful impact in her community.
