" I see the Millennium Fellowship as an opportunity for young leaders like myself to expand their horizons and develop into confident individuals who will strive to make the world a better place. Personally, I am excited to meet other student leaders, exchange innovative ideas, and learn more from individuals who have dedicated their lives to social impact. As a Millennium Fellow, I aim to promote mental health at my campus because it is an essential part of a great quality of life, which I would like to provide for all members of my community. "
