Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I have always had an interest in global issues, but I did not become personally involved until recently. Studying global security at Temple University reminds me every day how global issues are important and why fighting global poverty should be a cornerstone of policy in the United States.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I witnessed poverty firsthand by travelling and volunteering throughout the United States and in Latin America, yet most people living in extreme poverty are far away from any place I have ever visited in places like Africa and the Middle East. By interning with The Borgen Project, I can impact this cause from home and make a difference for people who live in very desperate conditions while also promoting American interests.
