" I am thrilled to be a part of the Millennium Fellowship because as an active member of my community, I am looking forward to work with
Gender equality causes.
As a feminist myself, I know that there is a long historie of violence and systematic discrimination, that created deep inequities and disadvantage from the outset. These inequalities intersect with each other.
I think that te core of my contribution at the program, lies at the intersectional feminism that centres the voices of those experiencing overlapping, concurrent forms of oppression, in order to understand the depths of the inequalities and the relationships among them in any given context. "
