Role: PR/Marketing Team Member

Fundraising Goal: £400

How did you get interested in global issues?
I think I became more aware of the global issues when the war in Ukraine broke out. I am from a neighbouring country and even then I felt so helpless, so after that I decided I want to help as much as I can.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Why not? I always say, if I can help in any way, what kind of person would I be if I did nothing, not even the bare minimum?

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love all thing pop culture – books, movies, music, everything! I also really enjoy a good hike and spontaneous trips to anywhere.
