Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I first became interested in global affairs after reading about them in school and watching the news. As a result of my degree, which increased my understanding of international relations, I then developed a deeper interest in global issues.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to help the world’s poorest because I believe it is necessary for governments and citizens to help those in need in order to create a more fair and equal society for all. Additionally, along with enabling you to meet new people, investigate new causes, and develop skills that can be helpful to you later in life.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
Interests: Hockey, current affairs, and cooking
