Fundraising Goal: £400

How did you get interested in global issues?
Since I was young I’ve taken an interest in issues that are not just relevant to me, but to the world as a whole. Growing up, I was encouraged to ask questions and educate myself about things like poverty, climate change and gender inequality. As a result, I went on to study global politics at university.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
Throughout my life, I have seen inequality on a huge scale. Coming from a more privileged background, I feel I need to do my bit to fight poverty. A more equal world is a better world for everyone.

My Compassion/Humility List
