Role: Writer

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
Hearing my mother’s story about her difficult journey from Honduras to the U.S in search for better opportunities sparked an interest in the issues that affected her and so many people around the world.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I want to do my part in helping the world’s poor in the best way that I can, which is through my writing in order to spread awareness in the hope of igniting change.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I love to read fiction novels, but I’m currently obsessed with self-help books. I also enjoy spending time with my five-year-old nephew and learning all about dinosaurs from him. Our favorite dinosaur is the Giganotosaurus.
