Name: Christine Irlbeck
Location: Lake Zurich, Illinois
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $550

How did you get interested in global issues?
I participated in congressional debate, opening my eyes to these problems.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I hope to mitigate the suffering in the lives of those who do not share the same opportunities as those in my community. As a member of the Model United Nations and congressional debate, I was informed of global issues, and I hope to be able to work directly to mitigate the impacts of issues such as global poverty and gender inequality. In doing so, the United States would be a step further to increasing diplomacy and benefiting those who suffer from a lack of opportunity.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I generally enjoy the arts (drawing and singing), as well as studies of law and political policy.
