" Equality and innovation is what kickstarted my application journey as a Millennial Fellow. Being a Millennial Fellow above all will help bring light to the project as most people will know about it hence outreaching to the people in the grassroots. It will also impact the lives of many young women and girls as it will provide them with the relevant knowledge and information that will help them improve their lives. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: YWG Empowered
My project is based upon the ideal societal
challenges that young girls and women face
each day of their lives. It is about teaching
young girls how to stand up for them selves
and knowing what they stand for during and
after graduating from school. It is about
empowering them to live better and do better
from all aspect of their lives and influencing
others to do so. It can be while they are at
school or even after school transitioning from
secondary education to university. It is said
that young women must start taking up space
in the society. Yes, we can take up space but
first we need to be able to identify the gap, be
able to notice the the difference between
things that needs our attention and those that
does not. Able to identify what we really want
and need out of this life. Able to identify our
skills and talents before education and mostly
being able to identify exploitation and
admiration. That is what my ideal project will be based on.
