" I'm a staunch believer that wherever we go, we have a duty to impact others positively through our actions or words. Being a Millennium Fellow is a gateway for me to learn more how to impact others in the society positively. I'm optimistic that I'll learn from my colleague Fellows and also be able to share my stories with them. The society we are living in requires more youths who are equipped with skills to influence others on aspects such as social justice and equity, I believe I'm doing so but I want to do more. My dream is to have a happy society, ensure optimal health of others and myself, and influence others positively. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Medsoko
The project is about creation of an online platform that will enable medical students who engage in business activities to earn a wider market and to make it easier for the students themselves to access various medical merchandises
