" “Being proactive, passionate and self driven are important in my perspective. I am always pushing myself to do new things, as I believe that overcoming self imposed hardships is a way to become a better person. Being part of the Millennium Fellowship will take me out of my comfort zone. It will present new challenges and I will have to find creative solutions to overcome them but most importantly; I want to make a social impact. I want to impact people not only through the project I will be implementing but because of the passion that I always carry with me and try to reflect on the things that I do.” "

About the Millennium Fellow
Maricarmen Ireta Sánchez is a passionate, hard working junior who’s studying a B.A in Humanities with concentration in English Literature and a B.F.A in Film production at University of Monterrey. She was born in Villahermosa, Tabasco, and is currently living in Monterrey to pursue her passions. Maricarmen is an advocate of the feminist movement in Mexico as well as the LGBTQ+. She has always been vocal about her desires to help others and of forming part of a multicultural community as she believes it creates respect and understanding and it helps improve self development. Throughout her high school years she engrossed herself in community service aimed for children who suffer from cancer and found great pleasure in making an impact if not on their lives at least on their day. Maricarmen aspires to be in an environment with mind like people who wish to help and advocate from their privilege, using it in order to create conscience and bring awareness and accountability.
