About the Millennium Fellow

Mohamed Abdi is a young and vocal student at the University of Nairobi, Parklands Campus where he is currently pursuing a Bachelors Degree in Law. Born and raised in Mandera County, Mohamed has always been conscious of the need for social justice given the wide gap between Northern frontier districts and the rest of the country when it comes to development. He has also been fortunate to have received the mentoring of his elder brother who has significantly shaped his desire for social projects and transformation of the people. Mohamed has been involved in numerous social projects. He has volunteered in a neighbouring school in 2017 where he mentored students. He has also in the past participated in projects aimed at empowering orphan children and those abandoned by their parents. His passion for social justice has also lead him to leadership. Mohamed is currently the President of the Moot Court Society, Parklands Campus. He has also held leadership positions in the Kenya Model United Nations and the Muslim Students Association. By joining the Millennium Fellowship, Mohamed hopes to acquire a global outlook on social transformation and leadership skills.
