Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? I first became interested in inequality in America, but realized that the global divide between the rich and the poor is an even bigger issue.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? In an increasingly interconnected world, decisions made in America can have an impact across the globe. I think that it is important for Americans to be aware of global issues and to feel invested in addressing global poverty.

Any interesting tidbits to share? My hobbies include reading, staying active, and giving back.
