Name: Jeffery Shen
Location: Atlanta, Georgia
Role: Editor

Fundraising Goal: $500

How did you get interested in global issues?
I enjoy writing and policy debate, so much of my knowledge and interest in global issues has stemmed from those.

Why are you volunteering your time to serve the world’s poor?
I want to do something tangible in the world, other than just talking about it – I want to be on the frontlines of putting out information to help people understand global poverty and why they should help.

Any interesting tidbits to share?
I have a personal blog that I write on! I also love to help out people in general; you can see me around school as a tutor and helper for teachers!

My Compassion/Humility List
I will do the following for any friends and family who donate in my honor.

  1. Put my face into a pie/cake for $20
