" As someone who comes from a small town, I believed that any initiatives I wanted to pursue were considered idealistic. It was not until university that I realized I did not have to have to be Malala or Greta Thunberg; I just had to start small and promote causes that resonated with me. Through the Millennium Fellowship, I want to not only help those who feel like they cannot make a difference, but also provide them with the tools and resources to start! "
Millennium Fellowship Project: The Cookbook Equilibrium
The Cookbook Equilibrium teaches food-insecure students provides weekly cooking and budgeting workshops while delivering meals and raising proceeds for food-insecure students at UBC.Due to the hardships of COVID-19, we transitioned to the educational aspect by creating a free, informative booklet filled with nutritional facts and a compilation of campus resources for students; we reached over 300 UBC students on our Instagram page and personal Stories which we hope to expand our impact in the next semester and beyond through our current and initial project plans.
