Name: Ismail Alarab
Location: Chicago Ridge, IL
Role: Human Resources Intern

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I have always wanted better for the world as a whole, and I always make prayers that we, as a human race, may consider upholding and maintaining assistance in areas that are in need of shelter, food, and water, clothing, etc.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I am volunteering my time to gain the reward of being part of an organization that makes a difference and speaks for the unspoken and people who may not have a voice in the world.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I am a goal-orientated individual who is very passionate in both personal and professional lifestyles.
