“I'm humbled to be a part of an inspiring and motivating community all working towards progressing the UN mission through the SDGs. I look forward to learning from the selfless and wise people my age looking to tangibly inspire change in their communities through action.

This opportunity as a Millennium Fellow only drives me further in my pursuit of a humanitarian purpose having worked with a large NGO much throughout my teenage years. I am indebted to my environment growing up from a low-income background and wish to give back in my fullest capacity using my privilege of education.”

Millennium Fellowship Project

Antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become a prominent issue in the global health space with low-resource communities especially vulnerable. The “Medical Diagnostic Kit for Bacterial and Viral Infection” project aims to develop a novel diagnostic early health intervention in order to empower patient understanding of their infection, reducing unnecessary antibiotic use.
