How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global poverty once I traveled to new places and began volunteering with a local youth program in my hometown. These experiences have showed me how fortunate I am and have motivated me to want to help those who are struggling.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I believe we need to come together as a planet to help those around us. It’s our moral calling to give back and aid those who do not have access to the same education, food, water, resources, and freedom that I have.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
In my free time, I enjoy dancing, exercising, reading, and photography. I also volunteer as a ballet instructor for underprivileged young girls in downtown Cincinnati. Additionally, I adore dogs – walking them, taking care of them, etc.
