" I hope to bring my unique creativity and talents to the program and address real world challenges with out-of-the-box, yet tangible, solutions that make real impact.

Millennium Fellowship Project: The Heureka Accelerator
The Heureka Accelerator is a non-profit startup accelerator designed specifically for first-time, inexperienced student entrepreneurs. These are students on my university campus who have exciting business and social impact ideas but lack the skills and resources to put their ideas to action, because they have no previous experience and/or necessary mentorship and connections in their industry. The purpose of the accelerator is to act as a "boot camp" to help these founders reach their goals, especially with a focus on social impact, Sustainable Development Goals, and environmental, social, and governance goals.
