" The united nations are the epitome of global collaboration and mutual assistance of the international community . The Millennium Fellowship program will help me be an active participant on a smaller scale in said cooperation in order to help brighten the future of the lebanese youth that feels neglected in the wake of the multiple crises that the country is currently facing. The MCN program will sharpen my leadership skills and add an edge to the compassion required to undertake a philantropic project. "
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
Mary Ammoun is the daughter of a judge. You might think this is what motivated her to persue her law studies, and, although originally this was not far from the truth it is no longer the case. In a country that has made headlines for rampant corruption , Mary has been committed to not be helpless and to provide assistance to the youth around her in recieving the information she wishes she had gotten even though the circumstances were better. Mary has been active in her community participating in many programs such as The model united nations global classroom to help shape her leadersgip skills as well as being a girl scout troup leader to convey her vues and experiences to younger girls. Mary hopes that the Millennium Fellowship program will take her philantropic ambitions one step further and will provide her with the tools required to change the lives of those who see no light at the end of the tunnel.
