“After receiving the email for the Millennium Fellowship and reading the background and work of Alumni, I knew this was something that I needed to do for myself and for society. By choosing Spelman, I made a choice to Change the World. I have high hopes that this fellowship will be one of many that provides me with the Platform to do so.”

Millennium Fellowship Project

Pillows for poverty began as a sweet gesture to help homeless individuals in the downtown Atlanta area during the winter. Eventually my passion for sewing and giving expanded and made me realize the impact that my work could have globally. I plan to make Pillows For Poverty a global organization by reaching out to individuals that sew in different areas in the US and in the world to give back and make a difference in their cities the same way that I am in Atlanta.
