" The joy I get from working with amazing people from different backgrounds who have mind-blowing stories is priceless. This team work makes me conscious of the fact that there are people who are willing to make sacrifices to make their communities and the world at large better and being one of those people is to me, fulfilling purpose.
I am positive that the skills I gain from the Millennium Fellowship will make my impact on eye care and mental wellness more tangible and aligned with the UNAI principles and SDGs.
I am excited to meet new people and be guided in better ways to serve the people around me. "

About the Millennium Fellow
Arimoro Praise Oghogho is a smart, young and intellectually bright Optometry student at the University of Benin, Nigeria. She was born in Jos, Nigeria and has spent a major part of her life and education in South-Southern Nigeria.
Praise has always been passionate about promoting eye care and mental wellness and this has strongly influenced her choice of career and dedication to community service. She has been a key participant in many outreaches and social media campaigns and has been part of the planning process of some of them. A lot of these outreaches have specifically reached senior citizens, prison inmates and children with special needs, providing free eye examinations, counselling and awareness.
One thing that pushes Praise is the fact that she was also in desperate need of help and it took a volunteer and Advocate for the Millennium Development Goals to make her a better person. It is this gift she tries to return to as many people as she can in various ways and one notable way is through the development of the United Nations Sustainable Goals.
