How did you get interested in global issues?
Studying abroad and taking courses in international affairs made me want to become more informed about global issues. It seemed as if the world was so large, and I wanted to know more about it.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I wanted to get involved in the fight against global poverty and saw volunteering my time with the Borgen Project as a great way to start. Foundations advocating on reducing global poverty rely heavily on volunteers and donations so that they can put more manpower and resources towards the ultimate goal. If I can help serve the world’s poor by giving up some of my time, I think it is an extremely worthy cause.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I plan to spend a semester studying and interning in Washington, D.C. next year and hope to study abroad again!
