"I am tremendously excited to be a Millennium Fellow to meet people with the same interests as me and who are passionate about learning and making a difference in the community."
My name is Malak and I'm a senior at Effat University majoring in Information Systems and minoring in Information Security. I am interested in cyber-security and learning new things. In the first two years of university, I didn't know what the major I want or what is my goal but then I changed my major and even my university. Now, I have goals to achieve it. One of these goals is becoming an influential woman. I believe that to achieve this goal I need to have leadership skills because of that I am so excited to be part of the Millennium Fellowship to gain leadership skills.
The Cyber Security Club aims to SDG 5 on gender equality and the UNAI principle of capacity-building in higher education systems. Only 20% of the global Cyber-Security workforce are women. The Cyber Security Club at Effat University will provide students who are passionate about cyber security an environment to gain and share knowledge, empowering women to learn and better understand in the Cyber Security field.
