" I am delighted at the prospect of getting accepted into the Millennium Fellowship because I can work with people towards a common aspiration, collaborate and impact the world positively.
I believe that we are not doing enough to help poor, sick and marginalized people and that even when we do our best to help that help can be ineffective. I am excited by the prospect of doing good, better. "

About the Millennium Fellow
Ayodeji Kumuyi is a sophomore psychology undergraduate at the University of Lagos and is indefatigably curious about most things. He believes that we're doing too little to help marginalized groups and people on the low end of the income spectrum and that all our current efforts are very inefficient. Always cautious, Deji prefers to work on things that bring the most good to the greatest number.
