Name: Emilee Kerr
Location: Athens, Ohio
Role: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? During my freshman year of college, I was introduced to global issues in both my Intro to Social Work class and my Public Health class. I realized then the importance of not only fighting poverty and inequality in our own country, but abroad. As I have taken more global health and social work courses throughout my time in school, I have become more interested in the issues people face domestically as well as abroad.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? I believe health is a right of life. No matter where someone is from or what they believe in, they have an inherent right to a healthy and virtuous life. I want to devote my life to helping others live their lives to the fullest potential.

Any interesting tidbits to share? In my free time, I enjoy running and hiking. Currently, I am training for a half marathon!
