Name: Imani Lee
Location: Lowndesboro, Alabama
Position: Political Affairs Intern

Fundraising Goal: $1,000

How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues during my last year of college while taking a political research class on low developed countries. In the class, the teacher would have us see how life was in those countries and watched documentaries to listen to people discuss their day-to-day life. From being in that class, I developed a sense of gratefulness and appreciation for what I have. Also, from that moment, I realized I was fortunate enough to help others in some shape or form.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to serve the world’s poor because I’m a person who loves to give and who thinks about the “what if’s.” You never know when it could be you. I live in one of the world’s richest countries; however, that does not mean it is not bound to happen to us. The sole point is that you never know when it will be you, and you will need help.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
A fun fact about me is that I love to volunteer with the elderly. I also like to take pictures and enjoy being around nature, and I am a dog lover.

My compassion/humility list:
I will do the following for any friends or family who donates in my honor…

  1. $50: Ride a horse by myself.
  2. $100: Jump in the deep end of a swimming pool.
  3. $125: Cook dinner for the whole family.
