How did you get interested in global issues?
As a political science major, I’ve been exposed to many issues of global importance. Additionally, I spent a semester abroad which really opened my eyes to the interconnectedness of the world; our actions affect countries around the world, just like their actions affect us.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I believe reducing global poverty is both a moral imperative and good for U.S. interests. I love the idea of improving the health and quality of life of people around the world while creating U.S. jobs, improving national security and opening the global market.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I hope to pursue a career in law – possibly in a field that would allow me to work with The Borgen Project again someday!
