How did you get interested in global issues?
My interest in global issues was sparked my freshman year of college. I took some classes on international law and global public policy. For most of my adult life, I’ve been interested in policy and politics, but never really in a global perspective. My experiences in those classes opened my eyes to the rest of world. I became intrigued by foreign nations and their public affairs. Every country and its peoples are so unique and complex. Although I follow local and national affairs, learning about the rest of the globe feels almost adventurous.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I was raised from a young age to help those less fortunate than myself whenever possible. As I’ve learned more about global poverty, it becomes more apparent to me how insular and isolated coverage of American policy and politics can be. I felt compelled to shed light on the struggles people all over the world are facing. I am inspired to do this because I truly believe that helping people become informed is the first step towards enacting change.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
In my free time, I love to skateboard, snowboard, hike/backpack, and read.
