Role: Advocate

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? My senior year of high school, I enrolled in a global politics class which educated me on how each issue in our interconnected world is intertwined with another. From this, I decided to dedicate myself to better understand global issues and how to help resolve them.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor? As a University student studying International Relations and Security, I research how poverty may lead to terrorism, corruption and inhumane living conditions. From this knowledge, I partnered with The Borgen Project to help combat global poverty. By reaching my fundraising goal of 500 dollars, I may help spread awareness of global poverty and how it is the root cause for many issues of today.

Any interesting tidbits to share? Along with my other studies, I am minoring in Spanish and teaching myself Russian.
