On the 30th of June, Tanzanian international supermodel Millen Magese became the first ever recipient of BET Global Good award. Millen was honoured for her many Humanitarian efforts including recent work in Africa for Endometriosis awareness. Global Good is a BET International initiative highlighting the humanitarian efforts of global personalities and celebrities in communities around the world.
The inspiring models shares these words on her IG:
As the time draws closer, memories of the struggle with endometriosis come flooding in. There have been times where I questioned why I had to go through such pain. I kept my silence for so long, ashamed of what might be said. Endometriosis is so misunderstood on many levels. After speaking out, many times I wanted to stop and go back into hiding, but I had already set an example I couldn’t retract. Today I stand tall on the shoulders of that decision and I thank each and every one who has supported me and my journey. Special thanks to @bet_intl for honoring me with the Global Good Award. Our voice has been heard.
