" I am excited to become a Millennium Fellow because I believe it will encourage me to socialize with the ones that care about the same cause, improve my communication skills, and motivate me to work efficiently for sustainable goals. The skills I gain from this experience will be beneficial to not only my work and studies, but also my life overall because I would be able to apply similar methods to similar situations I face in the future. I look forward to looking back at the progress I have made and congratulating myself on these accomplishments. "
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.
