" I am excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship for one more year. This opportunity has allowed me to know myself better as an agent of change and to empower my skills by surrounding myself with people who have the same motivation and effort to build a more inclusive and diverse world with greater opportunities for all. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Leonora
My project focuses on empowering young women through workshops and dialogue spaces regarding female health and body confidence.
The main goal of my project is to facilitate dialogue between young women and help them learn about themselves in order build enough confidence to participate in more spaces and achieve their goals regarding personal goals, academic focused projects and strengthen .
One of the main concerns of the project is the learning material issued through dialogue spaces; in which through a friendly space and easy talk young girls are motivated to reach out and speak about their body image and how it impacts their development with their peers and their confidence in taking chances that could improve their growth in different aspects of their life.
