" My drive for equity and justice that deeply fuels my desire to achieve social impact has translated itself into Impact Initiative, the project I have co-founded and been the Vice-President of this year. What I expect the Millennium Fellowship to offer me and what I am excited for are the knowledge and the tools to enhance my project in its efficiency and its impact on the community. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Impact Initiative
Impact Initiative aims to create an empowered community of refugees and students through collective learning. This is done by having UCL students tutor young refugees and asylum seekers, to improve their English speaking, or help apply to university. This will help them integrate universities or the workforce more easily and hopefully open them to new opportunities. With education being such a determinant factor in one's career path, this cause is a priority for us. In all, we hope to give back to the community and enable others like us that are passionate about fighting inequality in access to education to take a step towards Goal 4 of the UN SDG: quality of education. Helping refugees to master English also signifies opening the conversation and giving them a voice to express their needs, feelings, and demands. Bridging this gap of communication can help make a way around this linguistic censorship that adds to their struggle in integrating new societal environments.
About the Millennium Fellow
Yuan Camuseau is currently an International Social and Political Studies student at University College London, UK, specializing in International Relations and Mandarin. Being half-French and half-Chinese, and having studied for twelve years in the American Section of the Lycée International of Saint-Germain-en-Laye, she has always lived in a multicultural environment, speaking French and Chinese at home, and French and English at school, with classmates from all over the world. This privileged environment has driven her desire to share and make accessible the same kind and quality of academic support and resources she has received to less privileged audiences, notably with her Impact Initiative project offering English tutoring and university admission mentoring to refugees in London, thereby contributing to the UN Sustainable Goals.
