Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues? 
Honestly, finding out about The Borgen Project got me more in tune with global issues. Checking out the website got me more interested/passionate about the cause, so I applied for an internship and here I am.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I think that people in more well-off countries, or at least in more privileged positions, have something of an obligation to those who are less fortunate. I guess in simple terms, I hope that by working for The Borgen Project I can help “pass it on.”

Any interesting tidbits to share?
My brother’s an EMT, I have red hair, and I like to ski!
