" I am excited to be a Millennium Fellow because it is an amazing opportunity to learn more about and create an impact in a community I am passionate about supporting. This project gives me a platform to be able to provide for organizations that directly reduce inequalities between those who are neurodivergent and those who are neurotypical in addition to empowering those of different learning disabilities using a multitude of methods, including promoting advocacy, building community and providing scholarships. I am extremely passionate about this and I am delighted to be working towards this goal. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Infinity Trinkets
Infinity Trinkets is a project focused on providing to causes dedicated to empowering and uplifting neurodivergent individuals. Our first aim was to work with the Autistic Women and Non-binary Network this semester and then slowly incorporate other organizations supporting the neurodivergent community. We made jewelry and sold them in person at pop up shops to further our cause. The profit from these ventures are to be donated to the organizations we partner with. The organization we partnered with has goals that closely align to ours and include raising awareness on the struggles of the neurodivergent community and provide for the neurodivergent community.
