Name: Andrew Yang
Location: Montreal, Quebec
Position: Journalist Intern

How did you get interested in global issues?
Talking to my friends about their experience abroad in developing countries and discussing the roles that NGOs play in foreign aid have exposed me to the true magnitude of global poverty, and the necessary effort to match such an issue.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am fortunate to have an abundance of resources, especially time, relative to someone struggling in a developing country. If I can devote a portion of my time to better someone less fortunate than me, I believe both parties benefit.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…
1. $20: Write you a publish-worthy love poem
2. $50: Dinner on me
3. $100: Get any haircut of your choice
