" Being passionate about a cause is simply not enough. My drive to effectively pioneer and push for change is the reason I applied to be a Millennium Fellow; to be an empowered and equipped change agent whose impact will be indelible, far-reaching and sustainable. I hope to, at the end of this, share in Mariangelie Torres' testimony of leaving the program a stronger and a more conscious advocate for the issues that matter; a ready and active agent to propel my community to better and greater heights.
