Meet Millennium Fellows Leveraging Tech for Social Impact

Meet Kami

Kami Krista (Harvard University, USA), who is helping “companies in technologically complicated industries to develop effective decarbonization plans, based on state-of-the-art science.”  Post-Fellowship, Kami received a $100,000 776 Foundation Fellowship.

"The Millennium Fellowship helped shape my trajectory…[T]he community and network I was exposed to were vital in helping me access people I’d otherwise never reach. This allowed us to find our path quicker, and it brought more buy-in early on for what we were creating.”

Meet Majd

Majd Al-Sharif (Effat University, Saudi Arabia), who created a cybersecurity club and mentorship program to help more women enter the field.

"I’m deeply honored to be part of the Millennium Fellowship because when you have a dream of your own that you can't achieve without the help of a lot of people, you'll need leadership skills to get them with you. The Millennium Fellowship gives me an opportunity to make a greater impact under the sustainable development goals, and form a global network with like-minded peers and extraordinary leaders."

"The Millennium Fellowship was a game changer for me.

As a young social entrepreneur, being part of this global network of changemakers enhanced my cross cultural competency, offered me capacity building opportunities to take bold steps in my career and a platform which enabled me to collaborate and work with other fellows on some social impact projects globally."
