" It is indeed an honour to be part of the Millennium Fellowship and I am really excited because of the numerous opportunities it will avail me.
It's a sad truth that our ecosystem is dying, habitats are being destroyed, the ozone layer is constantly depleting, the climate is fast changing and the threat to life is real.
My project is one that aims to tackle the underlying causes of these problems.
The work of achieving Sustainability is a Collective effort which requires all hands on deck thus through the Millennium Fellowship, I hope to enhance my skills to be able to make maximum impact. "
