How did you get interested in global issues?
I became interested in global issues when I began paying attention to the world news more frequently around age eighteen. The news reports were often bleak, but, to me, many of the global issues I was listening to seemed to be preventable wrongs. From then on, I was inspired to become an advocate for the world’s vulnerable populations.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
It is troubling for me to see millions of people suffer from starvation, diseases, and more due to lack of accessibility to resources that would provide stability to vulnerable populations. Global poverty is a preventable issue that we can all band together as a nation and work to provide and facilitate sustainable solutions for the world’s most vulnerable groups.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am an avid lover of the outdoors, i.e. rock-climbing, hiking, canoeing. I am also interested in becoming fluent in Spanish so that I can better serve Hispanic communities.
