How did you get interested in global issues?
I became initially interested while I was studying at University and volunteering for SHOUT UK and Missing People. The many research papers that I had to read as well as the individuals I came across during my volunteering, opened my eyes to how truly vulnerable and helpless many people feel during financial burdens and issues. It impacts every part of their lives, from not being able to afford healthy food to lacking adequate education. This cycle can become never ending, especially in areas where there is poor funding for education and a lack of aid from more developed countries to the lesser developed ones.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I hold the knowledge that whoever someone is, whatever their background is, everyone deserves to live as abundantly as they can. No one chooses what environment or class they are born into and yet it seems to be the case that those born into worse circumstances are punished for it. A lack of funding, lack of awareness, lack of general support, leaves many feeling isolated in their struggles. It should not be the reality that the less fortunate are ignored and the most fortunate are celebrated. Everyone deserves to live a life they can enjoy and prosper in.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I currently volunteer for three charities. SHOUT UK and Missing People as a crisis chat volunteer and The Children’s Society as a Community Ambassador/speaker.
