" Being a Millennium Fellow will offer me the opportunity to meet and work with other young change makers within and outside my Campus, and globally. I am happy about this because I see it as an opportunity to develop my creativity, communication skills and gather more experience that will make me a better leader and positive change maker.
I passionately advocate for more youth inclusion in all spheres of endeavours, social impacts and contributions that aligns with the United Nations' Academic Impact and Sustainable Development Goals because I believe members of my community deserve better and being the change my people need gives me satisfaction.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Operation Feed an African Child
Feeding is not just about food, feeding also includes intake of necessary information to refine and nourish the mind, learning a skill to actually be productive, and being knowledgeable about ways to care about one's self and make the society better. This is what feeding means to the team of Operation Feed an African Child. In this project, every year the team sets out 3 days to teach children and adults around the community about hygiene, morals and the importance of education including population control. In addition, the project plans to distribute food and clothes to these children and adults.
