"The Millennium Fellowship is a key mechanism in showing that the leaders of tomorrow are equipped with the wisdom, attitude and skills to execute life-changing and ideal-changing initiatives.

I am excited to be a Fellow as I now have another vehicle to work under and spread new ideas, changing perceptions and creating a more sustainable world."
