" I have always been a social Impact driven person and I have always wanted to give back to the society. Being a part of Millennium Fellowship will show me what it actually means to make social impacts while collaborating with fellow colleagues and students to achieve my goal. It has always been my wish to be a part of an academic fellowship that has a global recognition that brings me together with many like-minded people across the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Let's talk about sex
People's desire to live a responsible, satisfying, and safe sex life, as well as their right to have children and the freedom to choose if, when, and how many they have, cannot be overstated. Adolescents' sexual and reproductive health needs are often unmet, despite the fact that they make up a significant proportion of the population. We are subject to a series of physiological, psychological, and social shifts in the African population that expose us to risky sexual behavior such as early sex experimentation, unprotected sex, and multiple sexual partners. If we are underprepared, this can lead to higher risks of early marriages, teenage pregnancies, unsafe abortion, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), HIV and AIDS, and other life threatening sexual reproductive health problems. This is what birthed the idea of the awareness project. It involves educating people about all they need to know about sexual reproductive health.
