Name: Christina Agostino
Location: Ann Arbor, Michigan
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $750

How did you get interested in global issues?
I got interested in global issues through a variety of economics and political science courses that I have taken at the University of Michigan. Additionally, I am a part of an organization called Global Brigades, which is the largest student-led movement for global health and holistic development. Joining this organization, and traveling to Honduras with GB on medical and public health brigades, taught me so much about sustainable development and the importance of helping the world’s poor.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time because I am fortunate enough to live in a country where my voice can make an impactful difference. The United States has a tremendous capacity to make the world a better place, and I believe it is well worth my time to advocate in order to help get us there.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love to run, practice yoga, travel, and watch soccer (I played in high school!).

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

  1. $75: Cook dinner
  2. $500: Go skydiving
  3. $200: Hula hoop in front of your house for an hour straight (I won’t drop it!)
