" For a progressive and sustainable future is my motto, so in order to fulfill my life purpose I need all the necessary tools to be able to implement law initiatives within my state, and from here to be able to turn around the deficiencies of my government and then to be able to make a global impact. Being a Millennium Fellow would be an enriching experience for me to learn new strategies and approaches to attack the different global problems we face. "
