Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
As a student studying public policy at the Gerald R. Ford School of Public Policy, I am constantly seeking out ways to understand how to connect our government’s policies to all the people that these policies affect. United States’ foreign policy is a powerful tool, and one that we can and should utilize to increase global connectedness and prosperity.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am extremely grateful for all of the opportunities that I have been granted with in my own life, and I hope that I can affect some change through my writing about and educating the public about issues of global poverty as well as the steps that can be taken to alleviate global poverty and hunger.
