“I learned about Millennium Fellowship from my Campus Ambassador . My first move was checking the link and watching Ban Ki Moon's video which inspired and motivated me to apply for it . I hope it provides me a platform to broaden my ideas of ensuring sustainable development and widen my perspectives and knowledge on different projects and provide me with contacts to take my work to higher levels .”
