Name: Calvin Lemieux
Location: Stevens Point, Wisconsin
Role: Writer

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I am very passionate about political affairs and current events. I have always found reading the day’s news and digging into the “why” behind the headlines to be a reliable and enriching source of self-betterment. It is also a great way to start deep and philosophical conversations with friends and family!

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Because the work to be done at The Borgen Project is work worth doing. The alleviation of suffering is a moral imperative, and it is empowering not just for me, but for those who need it most.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I have over 2,500 logged hours in political/historical strategy and simulation games, my favorite genre ever. I am writing a TV pilot for my Media Studies Symposium this year, and I am working on a graphic novel with my fiancée.
