How did you get interested in global issues?
I spent the first 10 years of my life in Ethiopia before moving to the UK. I went to a German school and studied French and Spanish at University. Building international friendships and facilitating global collaborations is so important in our modern world. The better we can understand each other, the better we can solve global issues.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
The Borgen Project aims to educate citizens in the US and Europe about issues they might not be facing in their day to day lives but are the reality for many other people around the world. I think raising an awareness and allowing people to build a better understanding of the problems faced by the world’s most poorest people is an important step in reducing poverty.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
Me encanta hablar en otros idiomas – I love speaking other languages and meeting people from different cultures. Dancing round the kitchen with my friends making dinner is my happy place :)
