" Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship makes me more aware and curious about the world and events. It broadens my network and perspective. This offers me a solid platform to implement steps towards the SDG I have chosen to work on. I look forward to the many events (eg. webinars) to be held in the future. I believe that the skills and experience I gain from this fellowship are crucial and shall better my efforts towards creating impact even after my fellowship duration. "
