Role: PR/Marketing Intern (Congressional Track)

Fundraising Goal: $1,000

How did you get interested in global issues?
In high school, I was very interested in our country’s civil rights history and when college came around, I started to branch out and learn about similar struggles in different countries. Now, as a junior majoring in international studies and economics, it is fascinating to see the connections between various issues across the globe.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
For a long time, I thought the only way to make a meaningful impact on an epidemic as established as world poverty was merely to donate to organizations that would do the “real work.” But after becoming familiar with The Borgen Project’s tactics, I realized that the U.S. should and has the power to spearhead the mission to end world hunger and set an example for the rest of the developed world to follow. With a strategic aim at the political level, my small efforts can help to change what literally happens on the ground.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love baking, but I am not good at it.
