Name: Asa Shorak
Location: Westerville, OH
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $1,000

How did you get interested in global issues?
I decided to major in political science in college, and ever since, I have found global policy and political issues to be very interesting and consider it important work that betters society. I have since decided to continue my education in order to become some type of human rights lawyer and wish to work on a global scale.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I see no better way to spend my time than working to better the lives of others. I feel people should not worry about things such as health, housing, and especially the ability to feed their families. The number of people who die from starvation and dehydration around the world is staggering, and I could not sit by knowing it was happening and continue to do nothing.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
Public speaking, debate, painting, singing, growing plants, and caring for my cat
