How did you get interested in global issues?
With an innate curiosity about the world alongside a highly empathetic nature, global issues have been an interest of mine for as long as I can remember.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
For me, it’s not even a choice, volunteering time to serve the world’s poor is something I feel I’m meant to do. If volunteering even just a little bit of my time can lead to saving millions of lives, there’s no way I’m not taking that chance.
