Name: Bryan O. Leggett
Location: Phoenix, AZ
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $750

How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve always had a passion for politics and policy concerning the well-being of others. I come from a family stuck in poverty and through going to college at the University of Mississippi and the help of my community, I’ve been given the opportunity to carve out a new path for myself and I want to do that for others.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I would not be able to be doing this internship or be in a position to help others that I am in today if not for members of my community volunteering their own time to help me get here. I believe that doing what you know is right for others is more important than a salary.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love playing guitar and playing tennis when I get the chance. One of my career goals is to be involved with the Economic Development team of a city in the U.S. to help my future-community flourish while continuing to push for economic growth outside of my own city and country.

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

  1. $50: Walk your dog
  2. $75: Cook dinner
  3. $100: Babysit/dogsit
  4. $250: Make a silly music video

Open to any reasonable request made by donors
