" I am blessed with a privileged life, where every day, I have the opportunity to grow as an individual. Such an opportunity still remains unknown to many deserving minds of our country. I believe in giving back to my society by fighting for them and their rights. The Millennium Fellowship will provide a global platform, and a better chance of securing my vision. I am thrilled and proud to be chosen as a Millennium Fellow! "
