" Helping others in a meaningful and dignified way has always been my life goal, and I know the Millennium Fellowship will keep me accountable to that goal to ensure that I work towards creating true change in my community. After participating in the Millennium Fellowship last year, I am even more excited and grateful to be able to continue connecting with like-minded peers and mentors this year. I know the passion of the social impact leaders with whom I will be surrounded will continue to drive me to empower and uplift the elders, as well as others, in my community in an effort to work toward SDG #10: Reduced Inequalities.
