" I look forward to engaging with what it means to be a thoughtful changemaker as a Millennium Fellow. I enjoy finding the link between what motivates people to come together and then igniting that unity into something greater. Being selfless is at the core of my work and informs my approach to life.

Millennium Fellowship Project: Chameleon Project
The Chameleon Project is a Philadelphia-based project led by Millennium Fellow Tyler Kliem that aims to promote awareness for eye conditions that affect children's self-esteem—especially children in marginalized and economically disadvantaged communities. In advancing SDG 3: Good Health and Well-being, SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities, and UNAI Principle 7: Intercultural Dialogue for the duration of the Millennium Fellowship program, the Chameleon Project hopes to partner with local hospitals and eye institutes to organize mental health workshops, support groups, and information sessions dedicated to demystifying the stigma surrounding eye conditions, increasing access to resources, and improving the quality of life for patients and their families.
