" According to John F. Kennedy, Leadership and learning are indispensable to each other. I'm excited to be a part of the Millennium Fellow for so many reasons, of which one is the fact that I'll contribute my quota, no matter how little to my community and the society at large. I am motivated to do all I do by the people around me. I need people to believe in the goodness of society by the acts I do. I'm most grateful for the opportunity to be part of Millennium Fellow as I'm hoping to learn in the process. "
