Name: A’maurie Duckwitz
Location: Boise, Idaho
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve always been pretty interested in advocating for others on the domestic level and frequently volunteered and attended marches and other events. I realized that I could continue to do the same sort of work on a global scale through affecting policy. I’ll always be grateful for the opportunity to assist those who have more difficult circumstances than I do.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I think that as someone who was lucky enough to be born in a situation where I don’t have to worry about going hungry, or if I’m able to receive proper medical care or education, it is a responsibility of mine to help people who haven’t been born in that same position. I think that working to help the world’s poor is one of the more effective ways I can choose to spend my time, and it brings me a lot of satisfaction to know that I’m doing what I can to help others.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I’m hoping to go to law school in the future, and I’m currently halfway through obtaining a Bachelor’s Associate’s degree in political science. I like dogs, reading, writing, and playing the piano in my spare time. I have a wonderful younger brother and very supportive father, and I’m very grateful to my family for everything they do for me.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. Clean out their garage/ house
  2. Walk their dogs
  3. Mow their lawn
