Name: Casey Shaw
Location: West Palm Beach, FL
Role: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I started to become interested in global affairs once in college. I later realized that I’d eventually like to work in foreign affairs and soon changed majors to better suit my long-term career goals. I’d specifically like to work in the global health sector.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I’m volunteering my time with The Borgen Project because of my interest in global health. Working to end global poverty, and assist those directly impacted by it, is vital for public health initiatives to succeed in the long-term.

Any interesting tidbits to share?

  1. I’ve worked with various nonprofits from ones involving education reform to those which aim to increase access to mental health programs. This is the first large-scale international affairs nonprofit organization that I’ve worked with.
  2. Recent graduate of Boston University
  3. Minored in Deaf Studies while studying at BU
