" Service to society can be a treasure trove to happiness for oneself and those around, an unparalleled means to find purpose in life. Being a part of my institution’s National Service Scheme (NSS) has made me realise the worthiness of this phrase and has charged me up to do social service as an ardor of a lifetime. I view my application to the Millennium Fellowship Program as a stepping-stone in my aspiration of social impact. This will endow me with the resources and skills vital to carry on with my quest for social change. I staunchly believe that many minds are better than one. Being merely a fragment of the society, effective social change can be brought about only by associating with a social circle with similar ideologies. The program will help me associate with like-minded peers to effectuate a goal to change for the better. However, the best part is that it does not end here. Being a Millennium Fellow will help me be in league with other social leaders for my entire life-time. The program will be a great motivational force for me being intent on creating a social impact.

Millennium Fellowship Project: I Know My Blood
Project "I Know My Blood" focused on spreading awareness on Primary Immunedeficiency (immune system does not function properly for those affected). This was primarily done on social media platforms such as Instagram and LinkedIn. This was done by posting informative posts and videos as well as a detailed informative website. People could benefit by knowing the warning signs which could benefit them from understanding the health condition of children in their family, it could help families already affected by primary immunedeficiency to understand how they could diagnose and treat the condition. There were resources provided for patients. It helped the general public understand the depth of the issue and made them ready to deal with it if they have to confront it for anyone known to them in the future and educating them about ways to contribute and motivating them to do the same.
