Fundraising Goal: £400
How did you get interested in global issues?
I spent most of my childhood between South Asia and Central Africa, so from a young age I have been exposed to a variety of global humanitarian and political issues and my interest in these issues started at the same time.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I think anyone that has the ability to volunteer their time to reduce global poverty should! And I think growing up in both wealthy and developing countries has highlighted the level of inequality in the world and by volunteering I can play a small part in this process of trying to reduce it.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am currently learning Mandarin Chinese and I am hoping to move to East Asia for a year to study. I love going to London’s fantastic bookshops!
