" The ability to show empathy, coupled with creativity and leadership, drives my passion to work and impact my community. Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship will enhance these skills, I believe. I also believe that the new skills I will gain from the Millennium Fellowship will help me proceed in making social impact on health and education as aligned with SDGs 3 and 4 respectively and with UNAI principles. I look forward to donning my skill set and learning new approaches to execution and leadership. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: EDUXPERTISE
Educational expertise abridged as EDUXPERTISE is an individual project led by Millennium Fellow Adeyemo Abdulmalik (Malik Ade). It revolves around Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4 which is to "ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all" and the United Nations Academic Impact (UNAI) Principle 5 which is "a commitment to building capacity in higher education systems across the world".
EDUXPERTISE aims to offer proper and constant guidance cum mentorship on academics through a team of old and experienced students and also through partnership with educationalists and educational organizations. It is free for all and thus, a privilege to young students and their parents or guardians in the community to get rare insights on academics and academic career. It will also be able to give insights on tertiary institution admission and facilitate student's successful entry, provide review of curriculum vitae (CV), statement of purpose (SOP) and other academic write-ups, give career guide, updates on examinations, scholarship and grants etc.
The project will majorly be virtual with only occasional physical encounter with students and or their parents or guardians. Though it will have its own website and blog and will be present on several social media spaces such as Twitter and Instagram, WhatsApp will remain the principal site where both the team and the people converge for consultation and the likes. Seldomly, members of the team are linked with students or parents upon request for help or further clarification on academic issues.
