" I want to be a Millennium Fellow because any kind of service that I have to offer to a community will be judged based on my intentions, and what I get out of it. This is especially true when conducting surveys to understand a community's problems better. The respondents may not be comfortable sharing information with a stranger who is not directly impacted by an issue. For this purpose and also to approach officials who may be instrumental in implementing a solution, I want to be a Millennium Fellow as it adds a sense of credibility to the work I intend to do. "
