" Being part of the Millennium Fellowship is for me an incredible and very exciting opportunity. The tools and learning that I will obtain through this opportunity will help me promote and focus my project and the impact it will have on the student community. Being able to share knowledge, skills, and perspectives with other members is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I believe it will benefit both our project and the student community itself. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: S.O.School
S.O.School’s aim was to create a community where students could express their feelings and hardships regarding mental health specifically linked to the challenges that the COVID-19 pandemic has brought. Within August-November 2021 we created a weekly podcast where students could talk and learn about this important topic; as well as a downloadable manual that will aim to serve as a diary, planner, and mood-tracker, to help students identify the real causes of their daily stress.
