" Since I was young, I have been driven by a simple desire to make the world a better place through forward-thinking innovations. When I found the Millennium Fellowship, I immediately recognized it as a path to making this happen. I am very excited to see where the program takes me, and to have the opportunity to develop my professional and technical skills with regard to social justice work. "
