" Millennium Fellowship wil give me an opportunity to work with like minded people across the world . It will also give me an opportunity to work on the SDG's and bring an impact in the society . Millennium Fellowship can even help me in increasing my social network . Most importantly , it will give me an opportunity to work for the underprivileged section of the society , which I have always aspired to do so . I believe that education is the only way for a country to develop . Educating the underprivileged children can help us in setting up a good foundation for their life . These students can further help in the development of the country . Through these students , their parents can also get educated and this can lead to increase in employement , sanitation , decrease in cleanliness etc. Millennium Fellowship can also help me in using the skills that I have learnt in my college to the right use . "
