How did you get interested in global issues?
I had the opportunity to interview the chief operating officer, Michael Neff, at Feeding Northeast Florida. While touring the organization’s facility and speaking with Neff, I learned more about the harsh reality of those living in poverty in my own city.
Global poverty is a huge issue, and I think when I was able to localize this issue, I gained a greater understanding of it. Educating myself on issues surrounding global poverty such as water safety, food insecurity, education and disease, developed my interest in global issues.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
It’s the right thing to do.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am a journalism and media production major. I love to write and edit articles, eat burrito bowls, and paint (very poorly).
