" I am driven to create ample opportunities for those who would normally be unable to engage in intercultural dialogue. Global citizenship is an integral part of encouraging a sphere of understanding in such a divisive world; we need an interconnected global citizenry who looks past socioeconomic differences. I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because I am determined to promote a worldview that transcends the borders of our nations and the constraints of our societies. Through education, we can raise our youth to be active, well-rounded leaders who will act as caretakers of a sustainable future that we have built through proactive initiatives at present. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Think Global
Think Global is now serving underprivileged schools in the Philadelphia area by teaching students the different facets of global citizenship and engaging them with intercultural dialogue. Our goal is to provide resources and access to fields of study that they would otherwise be unable to interact with. So far, we have conducted outreach and successfully established partnerships with seven high schools. We are aiming to connect these high schools with schools in China and Nepal with resources for English translation. Think Global has created a curriculum focused on current world events, civic engagement, human rights, and sustainable development. This curriculum teaches students ways to facilitate tolerant discourse with one another and initiate fruitful dialogue with students from another country. We combine interactive activities with substantive lessons in most schools' history / social studies classes. These interactive activities include breakout sessions, Zoom meetings with international students, and teacher-student class discussion. We try to limit an educational facilitator's sole reliance on lecture-style sessions. Think Global hopes to maintain these partnerships with domestic and international schools for many years to come.
