" Personal development and contributing to a better world are 2 things I take very seriously. The Millennium Fellowship is a platform for me to accomplish them while being trained and having other fellows' as my support system.
The skills I plan to develop consciously are my leadership, collaboration, communication and organisation skills. I'm very excited to interact with new people and improve my profile. I will take whatever I will learn within these 4 months and use it for impact someday. "
