Fundraising Goal: $1,000

How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues after my first semester in college. I took an international relations course that really opened my mind up to the issues that plague the world.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I chose to volunteer my time to serve the world’s poor because these are issues that need to be addressed. In this day and age no one should be without substantial nutrition on a daily basis. We have the ability to create a world without hunger if we take the right steps and focus our energy in the right areas.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am currently working to finish a book about the traits humans have in common, even though we may be so different on the outside our general needs are very similar. And if we find out more about each other our interests are sometimes more intertwined than we may ever think.
