Name: Christopher Cruz
Location: Wingate, North Carolina
Position: Human Resources Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I am currently majoring in Human Services. One could say that I have always has a passion to help others and work with people who seek addition help. I turned my focus on global issues with the discovery of The Borgen Project. By learning the facts about foreign aid, I have become a firm supporter of increasing the United States’ efforts to help developing nations.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Along with wanting to help others, I am also exploring career options for the future. I know now that I want to be part of an organization that works to help others by improving their quality of life.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
Along with juggling this internship, I am the president of a rugby club here at my university. I have been playing for four years, and it has become a great pastime for myself. I feel that my leadership and fundraising experiences with this club will allow me to be successful in this internship.
