" Love and Compassion drives me. Also, the passion to see an effective and sustained system that works in caring for children keeps me thriving.
Being a part of the Millennium Fellowship gives me a platform to further develop my skills and meet like-minded people thus enhancing the fulfilment of this vision.
I'm excited because I believe the UNAI principles with the aim to advance the achievement of the SDGs is also a potent way to stretch my horizon beyond limits. "
