" Unlike those before us, change makers are considering the long term impact and sustainability of their actions with urgency. Though the goals ahead may seem daunting, it is important students and activists approach a solution with a vision of the future. The Millennium Fellowship promotes these exact ideals in young adults, and will help me to connect with my community, and connect my community to global society. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: Eternal Tourist
I compiled educational presentations on how students can better be sustainable volunteers and tourists. I presented to various clubs around campus involved with volunteering or traveling in some capacity, and engaged in dialogue around the concept. I will be presenting my findings at a city wide showcase in the Spring.
About the Millennium Fellow
Julia Bowen is a Global Affairs student with a bright vision for the world: that we can overcome borders and find commonality in compassion. Experiences with law, non-profit work, local government, diplomacy, foster care, and childhood education has encouraged her to promote globalization at the local level. Julia's studies concentrate on justice, Latin America, and Spanish due to her early exposure to a small community in Barahona, Dominican Republic, that was relatively abandoned by their government. Not only does she want to see change in the world, but she wants to encourage others to fight for it too.
