" To seek the good in everything I do, this is my mantra, I do things because I believe that my own personal actions, even if they are minimal, add up to a bigger change. I expect to develop more skill and abilities during this program but mainly to see a real evolution in our own society and how we do things to change our surroundings. That is why I am more than thrilled to be part of the Millennium Fellow. "
