Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I’ve always been interested in advocacy. I grew up with two brothers with Autism, and from a young age, I was involved in advocating for them on a local, state, and federal level. That taught me the importance and impact that advocacy can have.

Then, in college, taking international relations classes showed me how much power the United States has in shaping the rest of the world. I feel it’s important that that power be used to create positive change.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I think it’s important that I use my passion and abilities to do something that can make a positive impact on the lives of millions of people.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. $25: I will draw you
  2. $50: Photoshoot!
  3. $100: I will paint you anything you wish
