How did you get interested in global issues?
I am a politics student at university meaning I am constantly studying current world issues. My second-year research focus’ on military studies and the environment. I have always been passionate about the environment and sustainable development. This is why I decided to take my political studies further, hoping I could make a difference.
Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
It is vital developed countries give low-income countries financial aid to help reduce poverty and aid sustainable development. Developing countries do not have the necessary resources to bring their population out of poverty and often these countries are experiencing forms of tyranny, making it even less likely they will be helped. As part of a high-income and developed country, I believe we have a responsibility to support poverty reduction legislation.
Any interesting tidbits to share?
I bouldered for three years before university, and now am part of a competitive rowing squad and enjoy other forms of exercise such as running, cycling and weightlifting.
