I believe that the fellowship will enable me to develop various skills and help my project reach a larger audience and therefore impact people in my community.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Calma wellness
Calma wellness is a project that seeks to address the mental health issues affecting young people especially in university. The project seeks to do so by promoting yoga as a way to deal with mental health issues and at the same time take care of one's physical health to ensure wholesome health.
